Forget Applesauce, Serve Apples!

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by Lennie

Hands up, who serves applesauce at the dinner table? How about trying this instead? It's easy to prepare, luscious, and you'll be amazed at how such a simple dish will impress family and friends. This is great when served with a roast...especially pork, chicken or turkey. Use whatever apples you prefer; I like golden delicious for this recipe. If you like the taste of cinnamon, a pinch can be added when cooking (don't add too much, or the apples will have a dessert taste).

Thank you Lennie! You are so wonderful for giving this recipe back to me? I have been looking for this recipe for a long while. (My mom used to make these). She died before I even thought about what a comfort these were to me and to my thirteen siblings. I did add the cinnamon, plus some sugar, to make it a dessert which is how I remembered it. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
