`Golden Delicious' (`GD') and `Red Rome' (`RR') apples were pressure infiltrated at harvest with 0, 1, 2, 3 or 4% and 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8% CaCl2 solutions (w/v), respectively. Sauce was prepared after 0, 2, 4 and 6 months in 0°C storage. Sensory evaluation was conducted to determine the effects of CaCl2 concentration on color, off-flavors, consistency, uniformity of particles, and overall acceptability of the sauce. Sauce from `RR' was lighter while sauce from `GD' was darker with increased CaCl2. Calcium chloride increased the consistency of `RR' and `GD' sauce but the highest concentrations decreased the consistency of `GD' sauce. The uniformity of sauce particles from both cultivars decreased with increased CaCl2. The presence of off-flavors increased in `GD' sauce with the highest concentrations but decreased in `RR' sauce as CaCl2 was increased. Overall acceptability of sauce made from `RR' and `GD' increased as CaCl2 increased, however, acceptability of sauce made from `GD' decreased at the highest concentrations of CaCl2.
