Apple Sauce

Apple Sauce can be serve with any meat dish, on pancakes for breakfast or dessert, your imagination is the only limit to the way you can serve it.

When I am peeling apples for my apple sauce, I always make extra for baking my Apple Bars, Apple Bread and Applesauce Nut Bread for freezing to use at a later date. I will also plan on having Apple Fritter or Apple Crisp for dessert that day.

When using any given fruit, vegetable or meat make a menu and try to add them to other dishes for that same week, whether as leftovers or add ins to your recipe.
