My Uncle Bill likes to can fruits and veggies every year and one of his specialties is applesauce. This one is pretty close to his in texture and flavor, and it will have to do until I can get a copy of his recipe. This version isn’t for canning, but a quick side dish you can make and refrigerate for a couple of hours before eating. I always think of having it with pork chops.
