Strawberry Season - Strawberry Applesauce

    It's that time again...Strawberry Picking Season!!!  Time for jammin for the year.  I used these recipes to make our jelly with pectin, or without pectin.  I also used the Pomona's corn free pectin .
 We made thirty four quarts of jam, saved some strawberries for eating, made strawberry popsicles, and strawberry applesauce.

Strawberry Applesauce

Ingredients:

  • 3 organic apples peeled and cut into chunks
  • 5 strawberries, washed and stems removed
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/3 cup agave syrup
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla sugar (optional)
Directions:
  1. In a small saucepan, add apples, strawberries, and water.
  2. Bring to a boil.  Turn down to low-medium heat.  Let simmer for 30 minutes or until apples are soft enough to mash.
  3. Mash with potato masher until desired chunkiness. 
  4. Stir in agave, cinnamon, and vanilla sugar.
  5. Let simmer 5 more minutes.
  6. Let cool and enjoy!
Cook's Notes:
  • You can add a small amount of lemon juice if you want.  
  • I have also made this by adding one pear to the mix, and cooking it up the same way.
