applesauce and blueberries in EVERYTHING
(indescribably awesome cookie jar by Gary Rith)
People who know me may not be surprised: I will pretty much each eat blueberries and applesauce all day, its an addiction! Add peanut butter and bread and you have 90 percent of what I like to eat.
(then there is, like, peanut butter sandwich with blueberry jam and apple butter and you sort get it all together in ONE :)
Yesterday I get this boatload of work done and it is cold and miserable and the applesauce supply is low....so I make more, and then I am like "havn't made my favorite APPLESAUCE PIE lately"..so I made a little one.... and, well, I stockpile blueberries in the freezer, from back in July? When it is like 2 bucks a gallon for them? And toss in blueberries to both....gosh, I should share those recipes down below...do you have any idea how great the house smells when you make all this stuff?
BTW, a customer yesterday who is flicking through this blog sees a picture of the stovetop, and my piggy spoon rest there in the pic? And she is like "make me one of those!".
applesauce, so easy:
-dice 7-9 apples, toss in big cook pot with one cup water, half cup sugar, TBS lemon juice, then add spice: ground nutmeg, clove and cinnamon
-boil on high covered then down to low to simmer 20-30 minutes until apples are breaking up and looking apple saucy, stirring often
applesauce pie: (derived from this recipe) it is my FAVORITE pie and it so EASY
1 cup sugar--or a little less
1/2 cup margerine, melted
1 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 9 inch pie crust--I make my own either regular flour or granola
Mix all of the ingredients----if you have berries like blubes or raspberries, toss on a bunch!!!! Even diced apples or peaches if you prefer :)
Pour into a 9" pie shell and bake in a 350 degree oven or 45 minutes
