Cook time:
Servings: 4 cups


  • . > (American / Metric measures) <
  • . 8 medium ' Redfree ' apples ** (peeled and cut into medium chunks)
  • . 1 tbsp. (15ml) lemon juice
  • . 1 cup (250ml) of mixed (frozen) berries (I used 3/4 raspberries and 1/4 blueberries)
  • . 1/4 cup (60ml) water
  • . 1/8 cup (30ml) Agave Nectar (OR any other sweetener of your choice)
  • . 1 tbsp. (15ml) grated fresh ginger
  • . 1 tsp. (5ml) ground cinnamon spice *
  • . > * In order to make a difference to your applesauce...other SPICES can also be used in very small quantities : Allspice, cardamom, cloves, coriander, ginger, mace and nutmeg.
  • . >> ** APPLE VARIETIES that can be used successfully for applesauce...alone or in combination are the following varieties classified by my absolute favourites to some very good alternative selections: Pink Lady, Liberty, Golden delicious, Gravenstein, Jonaclicious, Jonagold, Royal Gala etc....


  1. . In a medium saucepan, combine the peeled, cored and cut addition to the berries, lemon juice and water. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to the lowest simmer setting. Cover the pot for about 15 minutes without stirring.
  2. . Uncover the pot...add the sweetener and ginger...give it a quick stir. Cover pot again for another 15 minutes.
  3. . After this time the apples should have tenderized significantly and reduced the moisture perfectly. Uncover pot and close heat. Now, add the cinnamon and stir.
  4. . At this point, you can either have your applesauce mashed or left coarsely textured.
  5. . Serving and Storing: The applesauce can be made ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. It could also be poured into airtight glass jars to be placed in the freezer for up to at least six months. There's no real need to apply the typical canning process method.
  6. . Flavourful
