Blackberry Cinnamon Applesauce | stephgaudreau.comA couple weeks back,  I made a pretty tasty Apricot Ginger Applesauce, and it inspired me to make another variation on this classic favorite. When I was buying the apples, the cashier asked me what I was going to do with them. When I said I would be making applesauce, he told me about how his mother used to make cinnamon applesauce using Red Hot candies. That’s the first I’d ever heard of that! You could substitute any berries you like – blueberries would go really well and perhaps strawberries if you leave out the cinnamon.
