Instead of keeping the applesauce as just apples I added some carrots in as well to give it more nutrition. My son LOVES apple carrot crushers from Trader Joe's and I just knew he'd love this mix. And guess what? I was totally right!

Apple Carrot Sauce
- 8 small/medium or 4 large apples, skinned ,cored, and cut in quarters
- 6 carrots, trimmed, cleaned & cut into coins
- Juice from 1 lemon
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1/4 cup water
Cover and cook on high for 4 hours. When the apples and carrots are super tender, mash with a potato masher or large fork. Place the mash into a food processor or blender to blend into a smooth consistency (you do not have to do this but I like the texture of the blended sauce).
Serve and enjoy!
