Ah, this raspberry applesauce! It was born out of the fact that the Southern husband and I made our usual trip to Vermont this past week, and as usual we visited the wonderful Champlain Orchards, and as usual we picked waaaaaaay too many apples for two people to reasonably eat, and for good measure I picked two pints of sweet little raspberries. After we unpacked the car and realized we had about 384,485 apples, I realized something had to be done. And the first something is this easy and scrumptious recipe for raspberry applesauce. Ready to cook up some berry good (sorry!) applesauce? Let’s make it!
I would like to say that I came up with this deliciously dramatic dessert all on my own, but it’s a variation on the one we look forward to every time we visit our favorite bed and breakfast at the Jersey Shore. It’s a beautiful plateful of fresh fruit, aromatic mint with a scoop of sorbet on the top for good measure…all served up in a fresh pineapple shell.

I thought I knew everything there was to know about french toast, but as it turns out, there was one vital trick I wasn’t aware of, and that is that you can caramelize the outside of it with one very easy extra step. Yep, I said caramelize. Can you STAND it? All the creamy, comforting goodness of french toast, but with a thin, slightly crispy caramel coating on the outside.
Mmmm, berry season. Blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries. I love them all. And looking over the list of recent recipes, it occurred to me that I don’t have one single dessert recipe other than the banana cake, so it is high time I passed along one that is easy and seasonal and good and good for you, right?
