Strawberry Applesauce

Strawberry Applesauce is such a deliciously easy thing to make! I love to make it to take along to a family reunion, a potluck or barbecue, because it is loved by young and old a like! You can't really mess this one up, so even if you are a "non-cook" but want to bring something homemade, believe me, you will "wow" them with this one!



It's perfect for afterschool snacks or to take to work for a little pick me up! (and imagine being given a little canning jar of this from a friend or coworker as a gift or if you were sick? )

I made mine with Splenda for my diabetic husband, but you can  substitute sugar or any sweetener to your own taste.

Jan's Tip: I prefer thicker applesauce so I start with 1/4 cup water. you can add more after blending the sauce if you like it thinner. You can also thicken  a "too thin" sauce by cooking it over med. heat for a few minutes after blending it to reduce the liquid till desired thickness.
