I saw this great recipe for blackberry applesauce the other day -- which was perfect as I had some apples left over from apple picking. But as I was reading through the recipe I realized it was a little more work than I wanted to do. I mean, it was excellent if I wanted to can and store a lot, but I didn't. I just wanted blackberry applesauce, and I wanted it now.
So I did what we all do when we need to figure out how to do something: I googled. Because, believe it or not, I have never made applesauce. Not once. I only know the stuff that comes from the jar. Oh, and those little plastic tubs that go in lunch boxes. Yes, I know those, too...
I like simple.
And I also like bright pink food. It is pretty.
So I guess this turned out perfectly for me.
What I came up with was enough applesauce for four servings. However, if you make more, you can store it in the fridge for two weeks.
