You can call this an adult applesauce, perfect as an accompaniment to roast pork, sausages, wild boar, and chicken. Many kids will enjoy it in such a context, too, but it’s not the sort of applesauce most kids would appreciate for breakfast. I like to leave the apples somewhat chunky and so I use a hand-held masher to break them up. This recipe makes a lot but if you don’t feel like canning it, you can simply cut the recipe in half.
