maple applesauce

This post is dedicated to Jen, for her endless baby applesauce jokes. This one’s for grownups, though. Or, you know, maybe some teething babies. (Kidding!)

8 apples, peeled, cored & diced
1/4 c. water

boil to soften, then lower heat


1 tbsp vanilla
2 tbsp bourbon
2 tbsp maple syrup
dash of cardamom
cinnamon to taste
dash of sea salt

stir and mash

Then clearly, the only thing to do is to eat it warm over vanilla ice cream made by a local creamery. Vermont hates my pants. Or my pants hate Vermont.


  1. Oh man, I have over a quart of bourbon ice cream with toasted buttered pecans sitting in the freezer that wants to get down with this applesauce.
