Fall brings a lot of flavors to our table we may not enjoy throughout the rest of the year–like pumpkin, cinnamon, and cranberry–but by far my favorite autumn ingredient is the simple, humble apple. Whether you’re buying conventional or organic, they’re one of the most affordable fruits year-round and come in a variety of tantalizing flavors. In my opinion, this applesauce works best with sweeter red apples like the Pink Lady. Rather than add cinnamon, this recipe uses strawberries for a beautiful pink color and mild flavor. Of course, you can add maple syrup or honey, cinnamon, or any other seasoning you like if you want to take it a step further–I think basil would be fun!
