The applesauce I canned last year got moldy on top. I've heard there are new directions on canning applesauce?
To be safe, applesauce must be hot packed and heat processed in a boiling-water canner long enough to kill heat-resistant molds which cause spoilage. Safe directions are given in GH 1455, "Fruitful Canning".
