Maple Vanilla Applesauce
Applesauce, universally loved by both babies and adults, has a special place at the table during Hanukkah as an accompaniment to latkes. This version uses maple syrup in place of sugar to give the sauce a special fall flavor and enhance the taste of cooked apples. The addition of vanilla elevates it from an everyday treat to a real holiday dish. And while it seems easier to just pop open a jar of already-made applesauce, this version is incredibly easy to make, and is much more delicious.
Added bonus—your house will smell amazing while the apples cook—no need for a holiday-scented candle anymore!
