Ingredients

  • 6 lbs apples
  • 1 1/2 lbs Strawberries leaves removed
  • Juice from one Lemon
  • 1 cup Water

Instructions

  • Cut apples into eights and place into large pot, discarding stems
  • Add strawberries, lemon juice, and water to ensure fruit does not burn on the bottom of the pot and bring to a simmer.
  • Stir occasionally to prevent burning.
  • Mash with a potato masher as apples soften and add additional water, if needed, to get desired consistency.
  • Placing food mill over a large bowl, work in batches to scoop all sauce out of the pot and run through mill. This will remove apple skins and seeds.
  • Place in sanitary quart jars and process in water bath for 25 minutes if canning, following all normal canning procedures, or place directly in refrigerator.
