This delicious applesauce combines the best of both sweet apples and tangy rhubarb. If you don't have the rhubarb, you can substitute frozen cranberries instead. It is great for freezing, canning, or just eating as soon as it is prepared, warm or cold. Everyone who tries it loves it. It makes great gifts in decorative canning jars!

This was delicious! I halved the recipe as didn't need that much. Froze part of the batch and baked the rest into an applesauce yogurt cake. Will definitely make again. Read More
