This plum applesauce is absolutely delicious. It’s one of our staff favorites. Not only does it taste really good, but it is also perfect to eat during chemo. It makes a soothing sweet treat... to snack on when you feel sick, and it fits the bill when you feel like eating something sweet and good for you. This plum applesauce also makes for the perfect breakfast when paired with a little Greek yogurt.
In a medium saucepan, bring the apples, plums, sugar, and water to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for 40 to 45 minutes, or until desired consistency. Serve warm or let cool. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Gala apples are sweet. If you can’t find them, use Golden Delicious as a substitute.
If you are feeling up to it, this dish is the perfect filling for a fall pie, crisp, or crumble.
