Serve this applesauce hot or cold. Berries give it a deep red or purple color and add a hefty dose of anthocyanins—potent cancer-fighting antioxidants.
2 cups peeled, cored, and diced apples
2 cups fresh or frozen strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries
1/2 cup frozen apple juice concentrate
1/2-1 tsp ground cinnamon
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a gentle simmer, cover, and cook over very low heat for about 25 minutes, or until the apples are tender when pierced with a fork. Mash lightly with a potato masher or purée in a food processor, if desired.
Stored in a covered container in the refrigerator, leftover Berry Apple -
sauce will keep for up to 3 days.
