{No Sugar Added} Nectarine Apricot Applesauce

Gracen’s been talking about applesauce {and the fact that her Mama may have eaten what was left of our strawberry applesauce during nap time one day a few weeks back} for a long time now, so I decided we’d make a new batch today.

There were a ton of yummy nectarines laying around Grandma Charlotte’s kitchen and we just picked up some local apricots during our most recent visit to Davison Orchards, so we decided to switch things up a bit… This time around, it was going to be nectarine apricot applesauce. Sounds yummy, right?

Here’s our list of ingredients… A few apples, a couple of small nectarines, a couple of apricots, a little water, and some of the most delicious smelling Mexican vanilla you’ve ever come in contact with.

To get started, wash, peel, and chop all of your fruit.

IMG 7320When the fruit is nice and soft, remove it from the heat.
