An Apple a Week: Chunky Pear Applesauce
Editor's Note: Each week in October, we bring you a recipe that spotlights the apple.
Applesaucing is to apples as pickling is to cucumbers. It's a great way to preserve the beautiful fruits that are popping up all over farmers' markets. For an extra flavor dimension, I like to throw in pears and a few drops of vanilla, and of course loads of cinnamon. Applesauce is a funny little guy since he can be baby food mush one minute, and a nice garnish to roast pork the next.
