Applesauce "kicked-up" a notch or two. Great with your favorite pork dishes.


  1. Core, peel, and chunk apples and pears.
  2. Place in 2-quart sauce pan.
  3. Add apple juice, cinnamon, vanilla, and nutmeg.
  4. Cover, simmer until chunks are fork tender.
  5. Mash with fork, leaving some chunks.
  6. Add honey to taste.
  7. Serve hot or refrigerated.

Great way to get rid of ripened fruit! I used red delicious apples and added a little sugar to cut the tartness. I also added some ground cinnamon for an extra kick. Excellent!

this is very good. i used canned pears, and fresh tiny granny apples. this recipe works for just by its self applesauce, or over pork chops. it does make your mouth pucker a bit, though!
