Horseradish Applesauce

I know you are probably tired of apple recipes, but I still have a ton of apples. Sorry. This recipe caught my eye though because it is so intriguing I needed to try it. Sweet, tart, spicy, yum. The serving suggestions include broiled lamb chops and a spinach salad. (I can’t bring myself to eat lamb at all.) I however prefer it with pork or a beef roast or even as a nice side dish to brats.

Horseradish Applesauce

3 green apples, peeled, quartered and cored
1/2 cup sweet apple cider
2-3 tablespoons prepared horseradish
Salt
Freshly ground pepper

Combine apples and cider in ovenproof saucepan with a tight fitting lid. (I just used a baking pan and foil) Bake in a 350 oven for 30-40 minutes. Remove from oven and cool. Stir in horseradish. Season with salt and pepper.

Recipe from Long Grove Apple Haus Apple Cook Book (1976).

  1. Love this idea. I think it would be great with pork chops.

  2. I thought pork chops too but since my family likes a pork chop recipe that doesn’t go well with fruits–decided against that.
