Picture of Strawberry Applesauce

If you have some apples and strawberries, you can easily make up a batch of tasty strawberry applesauce! I had a couple apples I overboiled when attempting to remove the wax on the skin (for caramel apples) and thought I would try making applesauce! It was really easy to do and the results were very tasty.

Step 1: Ingredients and Supplies

Picture of Ingredients and Supplies

This will make a small batch of applesauce, about 2 cups/16oz. You can multiply it to make as much as you want and change the ratio to fit your tastes.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Apples - I'm using granny smith because it's what I had, they were ones I boiled a bit too much in an effort to remove the wax
  • 1 heaping cup of cut strawberries - I might have gone a little overboard, but I wanted it strawberry-y (for me this was about 7 strawberries but they vary in size so much this is hard to judge)
  • 1/2c Water - I was worried this was too much but after I was done and it cooled it was fairly thick
  • 2 Tbsp Sugar (optional) - it will probably be sweet enough without it, but it's an option if you like sweeter applesauce

Supplies:

Hi, can this be done in a larger batch send frozen? Thanks
I haven't tried that with this but I don't see why not. I've cooked, blended, and froze pear sauce before so I would think you could do it with applesauce. Quality might go down when you dethaw though.
looks delicious :>

I seal my applesauce jars in a hot water bath and they will keep for a bout 1 year (if they last that long). I can't see why this recipe shouldn't last as long if hot water bathed. IF I get surplus strawberries I(m going to try just to see - but I doubt it will last long enough to try.

I don't know a lot about preserving things like this but I don't see why you can't try :)
I intend to try but the grand-kids arrive just about jam making time so NOTHING lasts more than a few weeks. Other years I've had to hide stuff in the freezer to make sure I get enough to last the year out. :)
