Jana here with a healthy, delicious snack! We love applesauce at our house for a snack, and only buy the unsweetend kind. We have made our own in the past, and enjoy that just as much, or more! I ran across a recipe for Strawberry Applesauce on Pinterest, and made some recently! It was very quick to make, and very tasty! I used 2 Granny Smith apples, and 1 Gala, so ours was pretty tart. If you prefer a sweeter taste, I would suggest using all Galas, or another sweet apple. I am curious to try this recipe, but replace the strawberries with different types of fruit. (peaches were one of the main ones I was wanting to try!) If you make sure it's not too tart, this would make a great food for baby also!
3 apples, cored and sliced
1/2 cup strawberries
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium sized saucepan over medium heat.
2. Let simmer for 20 minutes, or until apples are boiling down and soft.
3. Place the mixture in a blender or food processor, and blend well.
