Roasted Applesauce

The roasting intensifies the apple flavor in this recipe.  It’s so good as an accompaniment for pork or as an afternoon snack so make extra and freeze them in small containers for later.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup water or apple cider

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of ground cloves

A few grates of nutmeg

2 tbsp coconut oil

Pinch of salt

6 apples (if you prefer a tart sauce, go with Granny Smith and if you prefer a sweeter version use MacIntosh or Cortland)

Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Toss all of the ingredients together in a roasting pan or casserole dish.  Roast for 30 minutes or until the apples are very soft and golden brown.  Transfer apples and remaining liquid into the bowl of a food processor and pulse until smooth.  Stir in the salt and serve warm.
