Need to use up applesauce

I need to use up at least a jar of applesauce, any ideas how? Preferably something savory as opposed to a dessert, and ideally something that won't use up a million pots and pans...

    1. Applesauce is good with pork and cabbage. I like to saute onions, garlic, pork cutlets/medallions, and cabbage, with caraway, and then stir in some applesauce and cider vinegar at the end. Serve this stew with polenta or steamed potatoes.

      Eviscerate halves of acorn squash, stuff with combination of sauteed diced sausage, onion, bread cubes, and applesauce, and bake.

      Add applesauce when making curried winter squash soup.

      Latkes, of course.

      Applesauce freezes indefinitely.

      1. I would make duck sauce....

        1. I would just freeze it myself. But I also like it in oatmeal and in yogurt.

          1. What about using the applesauce to braise pork - for a pulled-type pork. Or a butternut squash and apple(sauce) soup?

            I found a gingercake recipe that uses applesauce. I can't wait to make it.
