After last sunday's sweet and savory "sammich", it's time to drop the latter and go all out sweet again. Last time we let the Danes indulge Frank with banana and pecan nuts, this time it’s all about apples, which are the favorite of yours truly.
Apples, pommes, appelen, appel’n, リンゴ, apfels, omenat, mere… No matter your language, chunky apple sauce is sweet seduction. (And there’s no need to hold back as long as you rein in the sugar!)
Be sure to trap all of it so naught goes to waste. We must contain it.
Did I mention I like apples yet?
I caught him in the act of trying to steal my precious! Luckily I made two.
Don't let the cooking time on the recipe mislead you. By using ready-made applesauce you can easily half it.
Still, the real deal tastes even better! And the time you need to spend doesn't really differ if you make one or twenty so go ahead and whip out a huge batch. It's worth it! Thus spoke the apple addict.
