Summer is officially over. No more trips to the lake. No more hot summer days with watermelon dripping down your chin to help cool you off. And no more wearing white shoes because you know “THE rule”. I don’t even own a pair of white shoes, so I’m good.
We went blueberry picking, so of course, I had a bazillion…(or is it a gazillion? I don’t remember) of those delicious little blue balls of goodness in my freezer. 39 cups to be exact.

I remembered seeing applesauce with all different kinds of fruit in the store, so figured I’d use them with
this baked applesauce recipe we fell in love with. It always makes the house smell so good and we like it much better than the store-bought stuff.

I rate everything I make on a scale of 1-4 with 4 being the best and this Cinnamon Blueberry Applesauce earned 3 1/2 rolling pins. It was delicious. It was weird.
Yes, I have to say weird because we all thought so. We each took a bite and thought the flavor was really interesting. We just couldn’t pinpoint it. It sort of tasted like applesauce, but then you tasted the blueberries at the end.
On the plate, it reminded us of cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving. Everyone really liked it and will definitely be making it again. There’s nothing like homemade!
