Cherry Vanilla Applesauce

This couldn't be easier!  And no corn syrup, crushed up bugs (google "cochineal"), and definitely no beaver anal glands (goodle "castoreum"), or any other "natural ingredients"!  Just full of goodness, vitamins, and yumminess! 

6-8 apples, cored and sliced (skins on)
2 handfuls fresh sweet cherries, pitted
about 3 cups water
juice from one lemon
1-2 Tbsp agave nectar, optional
1 tsp pure vanilla extract

1.  Put apples, cherries, water, lemon juice, and agave nectar in large pot.  Bring to a boil, and then lower heat and simmer for about 25 minutes until very soft.
2.  Add vanilla.  Remove from heat and allow to cool to mostly room temperature (or else you may break your blender if too hot!).
3.  Blend in a blender until it's the consistency you like!

Apparently this should store for at least a few weeks in the fridge, but I'm sure it won't last that long in our house!  :)
