Rosy Applesauce Recipe

I always end up with lots of rhubarb each summer, but many of the recipes use a lot of sugar. This one lets the fruit sweeten up the rhubarb instead. I refrigerate the sauce overnight to help the flavors blend. —Amy Nelson, Weston, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 25 min. YIELD:12 servings

Ingredients

  • 5 large Red Delicious apples, peeled and finely chopped
  • 4 cups finely chopped fresh or thawed frozen rhubarb (about 8 stalks)

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  • 1. In a Dutch oven, combine apples, rhubarb, strawberries, sugar and water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 18-22 minutes or until fruit is tender, stirring occasionally.
