Recipe: Strawberry Applesauce


Hello, Fall!

The apples are finally ripe and ready for picking.  Is there any better way to use up all those apples than with applesauce? 

How about strawberry applesauce?

Strawberry Applesauce

9 McIntosh apples peeled, cored, chopped
10 fresh or frozen strawberries
1/3 cup honey
2 1/2 tbs. lemon juice or juice of 1 lemon
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Place all ingredients in saucepan and simmer on low for 30 minutes.

For chunky applesauce {pictured above}, mash with a potato masher.  For smooth applesauce, blend in blender.  If needed, add additional honey while warm.  This is delicious served warm.
