I have 2 gallon cans of applesauce that I am going to freeze in Ziploc freezer bags in single servings. Do I need to add anything to the applesauce 1st to preserve the taste or color?

No. You do not have to add any thing to preserve the taste or color if you get the job done in one sitting.
If you get tired and need to finish the next day, take it out of the can! Put it in a plastic container with a tight lid. The can will start to rust very quickly. Yuck.
Put in just a few drops of lemon or lime on top with a tiny little bit of water to keep the top from turning brown then get back to the job ASAP.
If you have made applesauce and have extra to store, freezing it is a great way to preserve the applesauce for later use. Here are some ideas about storing applesauce in ziplock freezer bags.
