While glancing thru some of my favorite blogs the other day, I found this easy homemade applesauce recipe at "At Spoonful of Thyme".
I love homemade applesauce, so much more than store-bought. I love it warm, and traditionally as a side dish next to some pork chops. So, that's just what I did last night---made pork chops and applesauce.
Because I am a child of the 70's, whenever I hear or in this case, write, pork chops and applesauce, I can see Peter Brady, on the Brady Bunch doing his Humphrey Bogart impression, saying: Pork chops and applesauce.
Does anyone besides me remember that?
(I am sure my friend Theda does--yay Theda!)
I didn't have to go far to find apples for this applesauce---the ones left on my tree needed something to be done with them FAST, so I went out and gathered some, peeled chopped and added them to the slow cooker.
My house smelled--FANTASTIC all day long.
I love fall.
Thanks Kathy for the great recipe.
