Makes about 10 cups
4 lbs. of apples (I used Gala)
1 lb. frozen strawberries
1 cup white sugar (more/less for desired sweetness)
4 1/2 cups water (less for thicker sauce)
Pot with lid
Peel all apples and slice/decore. Put apples in a large pot with 1 cup sugar and 4 1/2 cups water. Cook (covered) on medium heat for 15-20 minutes or until apples are tender. Remove the lid and let cool; add the frozen strawberries to cool faster and defrost the strawberries. In batches, blend apples, strawberries, and water for about 8-10 seconds (or until desired consistency). Try to have about equal amounts of apples, strawberries, and water in each batch. Store in a covered container.
You can play with the amount of apples/strawberries to get your ideal flavor!
Add more or less sugar depending on how sweet (or healthy) you want your sauce to be!
If you like a thicker sauce, use less water!
