“I read about this side dish on another site and was intrigued. I had never heard of this combination before, you see. When I googled for the recipe, I got two versions, the one below which is from, and a much simpler one, which, I confess, is the one I tried. For this version you peel a banana and mash it in a bowl with a fork or potato masher. (You can soften the banana in the microwave by heating it for 20 seconds, if needed.) Add a can of applesauce to the mashed banana. You can puree the mixture or simply mash it with the potato masher which will usually get the mixture smooth.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel, quarter, core and slice apples. Chop bananas. Combine both in in a large saucepan; add remaining ingredients.
  2. Bring to a boil; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until apple is pulpy. Reduce heat to low or medium and whisk/stir until pretty well mashed; remove from heat and continue whisking/mashing until it is as smooth as you like it.
