Ruby Applesauce with Cranberries Recipe- Vegan + Gluten-Free
2 rounded cups peeled chopped apples- preferably mixed varieties for best flavor
1 cup fresh or thawed frozen cranberries
1/2 cup cranberry juice or cranberry-apple juice, more as needed
1 cinnamon stick
Raw organic agave nectar or honey, to taste (I used 2 tablespoons, as I wanted it tart)
Combine the chopped apples and cranberries in a medium sauce pan and pour in enough cranberry or apple-cranberry juice to barely cover the fruit. Add a whole cinnamon stick. Cover and bring to a simmer.
Cook until the fruit is very soft. Remove the cinnamon stick. Using a potato masher, mash the fruit until you get a sauce texture you like. I prefer mine with a little bit of texture. If you like your applesauce smoother process it in a food processor or Vita-Mix.
Taste and sweeten the sauce with agave or honey. Stir and allow it to cool a bit.
Spoon into a storage container, cover and chill until serving.
Makes about a pint of sauce.
