Rhubarb Applesauce

Somehow this recipe evolved from rhubarb frozen yogurt to applesauce.  I will blame the sunshine for my inability to finish this recipe as originally intended but the rhubarbsauce turned out great so no complaints here!  Homemade sauce is a much healthier (and better tasting alternative) and easier way to consume fruit.  You could mix any type of fresh fruit in with this recipe (except bananas!).


2 1/2 cups chopped rhubarb
1 apple cored and chopped (skin on)
1/2 cup honey
boiling water

1. In a heavy deep bottom pot, combine chopped rhubarb, apple, honey and cover the fruit with boiling water.
2.  Let sit about 30 minutes
3.  Drain off 3/4 cup or so of excess water, the rest can remain.
4.  Use blender or immersion blender to puree the fruit.
5.  Let cool before transferring to tupperware.
6.  Store in the fridge in an airtight container up to a week, store in the freezer up to a year!
