This lovely, chunky applesauce pairs well with this week’s Bavarian fare.
4 pounds fall apples of your choice, peeled, cored and quartered
¼ cup fresh lemon juice
¾ cup organic cane sugar
Pinch of salt
1. Combine apples, lemon juice, sugar and 1½ cups water in a large pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium low, partially cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are completely soft, about 40 minutes.
2. Mash the apples with a potato masher or large fork, if needed, until applesauce reaches desired texture. Applesauce can be stored in the refrigerator up to 1 week, or in the freezer up to 3 months.
This unique recipe from Jamie Oliver ingeniously combines fresh mint, crème fraîche and Anaheim chile.
2 pounds baby red potatoes, scrubbed
1 cup crème fraîche
Zest and juice from 1 lemon
½ cup fresh mint, chopped
1 Anaheim chile, seeded and finely chopped
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
1. Gently boil potatoes in a large pot of salted water until tender, then drain. Allow to cool slightly, then slice all potatoes in half.
2. Transfer to a large mixing bowl and dress with crème fraîche, lemon juice and zest, sea salt and fresh ground pepper to taste. Stir in half of the fresh mint and sliced pepper in with the salad, then use the remaining mint and pepper to garnish the finished dish.
