Blueberry Barbecue Sauce

By Sharon Merkel-Prudhomme Blueberries are plentiful and plump this time of year! In my “former life” I enjoyed 28 years cooking live on ABCTV 27 Harrisburg, Pa. as Mid-Day Gourmet. This is one of the goofy lil’ recipes I threw together back in June of 2009. Ingredients: All are approximate - I always cook to taste & don't get hung up on a recipe-create-its' what it’s all about! 1/4 C. apple sauce (always have the little cups on hand for cooking) 1 C. fresh blueberries *(raspberries are in now & can be used as well) 1/4 C. tomato paste (out of tomato paste? throw in some ketchup!) 1/4 C. honey (out of honey? throw in some karo or maple syrup)
