Kiwi and Fuji Apple Applesauce
I got a new toy for Christmas. I was so excited as I wanted a food processor for years! Since I got it, I've been slicing, chopping and pureeing anything I can get my hands on. The other day, I used it to make a marinade for some squash that I'd normally just chop everything up by hand and put it all together. I told my husband that I just couldn't handle that and used that as my excuse to use the food processor. He laughed. When I got this food processor, I looked up some of the recipes that use a food processor. I came across a kiwi and fuji apple applesauce recipe on Pinterest. I made it like it said, only I doubled the recipe as it made a small amount. I tried it and it was very tart and needed a little bit more kiwi flavor. So I altered their recipe a little bit. I added the sugar to calm down the tartness a little bit and I added the kiwi to give more depth to the flavor. I hope to make a Kiwi Strawberry Fuji Apple Applesauce sometime. I would just omit one of the kiwis and replace it with some strawberries. The best thing about this recipe is that it's fast and tastes really fresh and doesn't take a whole lot of effort to make. No cooking required!
KIWI AND FUJI APPLE APPLESAUCE
3 Kiwis, peeled
2 Fuji Apples, cored, peeled and chopped down to big hunks for processing
Juice of 1 Lemon
Sugar to taste (I did about 2 tsp)
Put all together in food processor with chopping blade. Let it go until it gets blended into a nice smooth applesauce. Then it's ready to eat!
Original recipe came from Chef Haji on tastyplanner.com. I added a kiwi and added in the sugar.
