I had some apples in the fruit bowl that were about to make their farewell to edibility when I found this recipe on the Martha Stewart website.
I like applesauce but have never been a fan of the baked apple. Cottage Master does not like either but a BIG fan of apple pie.
When I read the ingredients I thought it might be something we both would like.
It smelled like apple pie while baking. I left it chunky even though Martha describes in detail how to pulverize the apples into mush.
After Baking (before mashing)
Without telling the Cottage Master what it was I gave him a taste. “Do you like it?” “Yeah.”
It has the consistency of applesauce and tastes like apple pie.
The next day I told him what was for lunch including the applesauce. “But I don’t like applesauce.” “But you liked what I gave you yesterday.” “That was applesauce? Now I’m not sure I like it.”
Silly me. I should never have told him what it was.
