Crabapple Sauce Serving Suggestion

The crabapple sauce is one of my favorite fruit treats. I can hardly describe how much I like the tartness, with the texture of applesauce that most of us have loved since childhood. This morning, I sliced some banana into the bowl with the crabapple sauce. This is a perfect combination!

The crabapple is tart and the banana is smooth and sweet. What a great medley of flavors and textures.

A 1/2-cup serving of the crabapple sauce, unsweetened, is about 100 calories. You will almost certainly want to add some sweetener, and if it's sugar or honey, you'll need to add those calories in.

This size serving would supply about 20% of a daily dose of vitamin C, and 5% each of calcium and iron. Crabapples are also high in Potassium, providing 10% of this mineral. Like any apple, they are a good source of fiber, but are high in carbohydrates because of the natural sugars.

Its been years since I've had crab apples or sauce made from them, but I did love them for their tartness.

Another thing (crabapple) I've only read about thus far. Must try someday. :)
