Berry Applesauce

A smooth and tangy applesauce made in the crockpot. It’s a great healthy snack for kids and it makes wonderful baby food too.

6 large apples (I used Royal Gala apples), peeled and sliced
1 cup strawberries, sliced
1 cup blueberries, fresh or frozen
1/4 cup unsweetened applejuice
2 tablespoons lemon juice
Place ingredients in a crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. After cooking, blend with an immersion blender, or simply mash them for a chunkier sauce.
My plan was to make a batch of this and freeze it in little containers to use for the kids’ lunches instead of buying Fruitsation cups all the time. Well so much for that because I served it to the kids for a bedtime snack and before I knew it the entire batch of applesauce was gone!  I couldn’t get over how much they ate, and I didn’t mind because it’s a good way to get fruit in them. Next time I’m going to have to make a bigger batch. The only thing I might do differently is add less juice because I found it was a little thinner than I like. The kids didn’t seem to care though.
