Save those Summer Fruits - Berry Applesauce

Looking for easy ways to savour the summer fruits which are all perfectly in season?
This homemade applesauce is one of my favourites! If you freeze it in small portions you can take it as a snack throughout the year. Great for kids too - or even as a baby food!

And, it utilizes my favourite kitchen appliance - the slow cooker (great for hot days when turning on the stove is absolute torture)!

Berry Applesauce

6 large apples (any variety will work), 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.

Cool and enjoy straight from the fridge for up to a week - or freeze and enjoy all year long!
