Savory Ginger Applesauce

It seems as though we only eat applesauce around Thanksgiving, but there’s no reason for that! Apples are still in abundance, and a good savory applesauce is both easy and extremely versatile. This would be great to dress up a pork dish, with crispy potatoes, or on its own

Serves 6

10 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 8 pieces each

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup Sweet Ginger Saucey Sauce

2 pieces fresh ginger, peeled

3 whole cloves

2 sprigs fresh savory


  1. Combine apples, sugar, lemon juice, Sweet Ginger Saucey Sauce, ginger, cloves and 1 cup of water
  2. Cover and set over high heat. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until apples are very soft. This should take about 30minutes
  3. Remove from heat and whisk, breaking up any apple pieces. Pass through ricer or fine-mesh strainer
  4. While applesauce is still warm, stir in sprigs of savory. Remove before serving
