Pork chops were on the menu, and they would be wood-fired on the grill to perfection by the BBQ King – who, by the way, was recently overseas and “wowed” his fellow service members with his now world-famous ribs! Hail to the International BBQ King!
What will round out this delicious fall meal? Warm, homemade applesauce, simmered with cinnamon, plus freshly steamed broccoli.
The applesauce is beyond simple to make. In fact, it is so easy, you may never buy a jar of it again.
Homemade Applesauce with Cinnamon
Peel and slice 10-12 apples (I usually use macs, and these were from our local Farmer’s Market).
Give a generous sprinkle of cinnamon (don’t go overboard, as too much cinnamon can taste bitter) and add two or three generous tablespoons of brown sugar.
Bring to a gentle boil, stir, then turn heat to low and cook until thickened. (Just add water or a little apple juice if you prefer a thinner sauce.) This step will take 30-45 minutes, depending on your preference for a thick or thin sauce. At this time, take a taste so you can adjust the cinnamon and brown sugar in your applesauce.
Serve warm or cold.
That’s it – simply perfect for a simple autumn meal.
