Berry Applesauce

Makes 4 servings

Serve this applesauce hot or cold. Berries give this applesauce a deep red or purple color and add a hefty dose of anthocyanins—potent cancer-fighting antioxidants.

2 cups peeled, cored, and chopped apples
2 cups fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries
1/2 cup frozen apple juice concentrate
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook over very low heat for about 25 minutes, or until 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 Applesauce will keep for up to 3 days.
