500 Club Strawberry-Rhubarb Applesauce


Makes about 2 ½ cups

2 apples, peeled if desired*
1 cup chopped rhubarb
½ cup sliced strawberries
¼ cup sugar
1/3 cup orange juice
1 tsp. Orange zest, if desired

Core and chop apples. In a saucepan over medium heat, place apples with 1 Tbsp. Water. Cook apples about 5 minutes, stirring often, until apples soften slightly. Add remaining ingredients then turn heat up slightly to bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat and continue to cook, stirring often, for 10 minutes or until apples and rhubarb are soft. More water or sugar can be added to taste. Cooled applesauce can be pureed in a blender or food processor if a smoother consistency is desired.

*Leave the peel on apples on for added fiber and nutrients
