Homemade Rustic Applesauce Recipe

Homemade Rustic Applesauce Recipe

Just thought I would put this one up because it’s great! (I will have some videos coming with this going on top of wood-fired pork chops!)

Applesauce is easy and delicious when done right.  You can use any type of apples. But I like Green apples more tart flavor that goes well with the brown sugar cinnamon nutmeg butter and all the other goodness.

The apple sauce recipe was one that I created in my restaurant years ago. We would serve it with wood-fired center cut pork chops or bone-in chops. We would serve it on the side and finish the chops with it roasted on top of the chops to.

Here is what you need.

4 apples rough cut chunks. I like it chunky and rustic looking when it’s done.

1/4 lb of butter (Love Butter)

2 oz of dried cranberries

2 oz of raisins

1 t spoon of nutmeg

2 cinnamon sticks  (or a teaspoon)

2 oz of walnuts

4 oz of brown sugar

Water:  about 1.5 cups That will vary on what type of pot you’re cooking in

Procedure Homemade Rustic Applesauce Recipe

This is basically a simple dish with lots of flavors.

Place apples in a cast iron sizzle plate add water just enough so the apples are not floating but half way in the water. If you put too little you can add more. If you put too much you can cook it down. But careful you don’t want to burn it or make it too soft. (Another Note with cast iron cooking be sure the pot is clean not full of char or your apple sauce will get a gray color from the char mixing with boiling water. So clean that pot well.)

Add all ingredients to the apples and mix well.  Place the pot in the oven. Flames should not be too high but the oven should be hot. It takes a while for the pot o heat up. Stir the ingredients every few minutes as it does.

As the mixture boils and evaporates the apples will begin to dissolve as you stir them. Be sure not to burn the cranberries or raisins keep them moist. they can burn easily!

let the dish boil and stir softly

The dish will be done when the apples are soft and the sauce begins to form, stir it up if it’s still watery, let it cook more. The apple sauce should be chunky and thick.  Take it out of the oven then get your pork chops going. When they are almost done you can put some on top and caramelize the apple sauce on top or just serve it on the side.

Make a lot you will love rustic applesauce!

  • A big thank you to scot and his team! We were in the market for a pizza oven upgrade . After looking around for a few months I stumbled onto scots company, picked up the phone dialed the number and spoke to scot, he is very passionate about his company and customer service, after we spoke I had no doubt I wanted to purchase an oven from him. Upon arrival I was really surprised how sturdy the build is! Well insulated to retain heat for hours, and really pleasing to the eye. Overall my experience with the oven and scot has been nothing short of pleasant.

  • I don’t even know where to start. I just know that I’m obsessed with this oven and all I do is cook outside now. I haven’t even used my barbecue grill since I got this oven. There’s so many things you can do with it. I entertain a lot so for me this was a home run , my neighbors, friends and family come over to visit and all I wanna do is show off the oven lol if you’re thinking about getting an oven don’t hesitate as you can see from my pictures there’s so many different things you can make with it I learned so much from Scott watching the YouTube videos that he posted everything I made so far has been delicious!!!

  • Incredible ovens! My family has always been searching for a great pizza oven for our backyards and all I can say is WOW! Let me start off by telling you that all of my family owns pizza shops and has for the last 35 years, so novices we are not. We were very excited to see what this little backyard oven could do. My god! Did a better pizza just come out of this oven then at my shop? Are you kidding me!!!!!!! My brother-in-law and I were floored! The crust developed perfectly and the toppings melted right into the sauce. We cooked up some red, green, and yellow bell peppers ahead of time in a cast iron pan in the oven before throwing them on the pie. Did I mention I’m not really a fan of peppers? But something magical happened in this oven between the Smokey wood and the heat turbulence in the dome of the oven I’m guessing. Or maybe it’s some magic at this point, I just can’t be sure. Anyways, now that I love peppers on my pizza I can stand here and say, this oven has got it all. Simplicity for the novice, and the seriousness of a modern pizza chef. I wish I would have gotten one sooner from you guys. Donald LeMay Stone Fired Piizza
