Nothing is better than some homemade applesauce… WAIT peach applesauce is definitely a competitor! I had tons of peaches in my fridge, and I was wondering how the heck I was going to use all of them. Then I look over to my recycling bin, and there sits an empty apple sauce box. I immediately whipped out my pressure cooker and started dicing up my fruit. This recipe is so easy to make, and takes minimal effort! The pressure cooker works wonders here, and it makes the cooking time significantly shorter!
You can always use apples with a dash a cinnamon, or add what ever fruit you like. I think strawberries or raspberries would be a perfect flavor addition! This recipes is also really good for when you have tons of fruit and they are about to go bad because you can store this apple sauce for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. I know kids will love this recipes, and it will make a great back to school snack!
Key ingredients for this peach applesauce:
- Obviously! If you have a ton of peaches and don’t know how you will consume them all, then make peach applesauce!
- I like using honey crisp apples, but granny smith apples will also work!
- Coconut sugar
- I like adding a little bit of sweetener to balance out the sourness that can stem from the peaches! However, you can totally leave it out to keep it no sugar added.
