Ingredients
  • Strawberry Applesauce
  • My family used an old cup which was also passed down through the generations to measure below are the closest measurements to the old cup
  • 8-9 medium apples
  • 1 cup strawberries you can use frozen strawberries if you do not have fresh
  • 1 tablespoon + 2-1/3 teaspoons bottled lemon juice...
  • ⅓ cup + 3 tablespoons water
  • ⅓ cup +3 tablespoons white sugar
Instructions
  1. Slice apples, Place apples in a large heavy pot. Add water, lemon juice and mix well. Bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to simmer. Cook until apples are soft about 25 to 30 minutes
  2. Mash strawberries with potato masher and add to apples about 5 minutes before apples are done. Mix well and continue cooking for 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. Process the apple mixture in a blender until desired consistency (we like ours a little chunky) Return mixture back to the pot and add the sugar to taste. You may not need the entire amount of sugar the recipe calls for depending on how sweet the apples you are using are. Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly to dissolve the sugar.
  4. You can freeze the applesauce or can if you prefer
  5. Makes 3-4 pints
