  3. Blend: For a chunky sauce, mash the apples and strawberries with the back of a wooden spoon. For a smoother sauce, transfer all ingredients into a blender or food processor and puree for 30-60 seconds or until you achieve your desired constancy. I pureed mine for 45 seconds using an emersion blender. If pureeing for baby, puree for 1-2 minutes or until very smooth.
