After I made my sweet and savory applesauce for pork chops, I knew a raw applesauce was in order. I had some leftover dried cranberries and thought, hey, this might work. Yummers!! No sweeteners needed for this one, just a bit of orange juice. Really delicious, healthy, refreshing...and raw!
-6 organic red apples of choice, chopped. (3 peeled, 3 with skins)
-1 cup dried cranberries, soaked in filtered water for about an hour (try to find dried berries with no sugar added or sulfur dioxide)
-1/4 cup orange juice (I used two small Clementines, but adding orange juice is totally optional...I just happen to love anything tart!)
1. In a food processor fitted with the S-blade, blend apples until they start to release some of their juice.
2. Strain cranberries and add to apples, blend until well incorporated.
3. Add orange juice and continue blending until desired consistency. I went with a traditional applesauce texture.
