Applesauce in savory dishes (other than a side for pork chops...). Any suggestions?
My MIL has just given us a CASE of canned applesauce, and I have no idea what to do with it all. We don't eat pork chops very often, and I do not bake, so all those lovely breads are not going to happen.
The only idea I've come up with (but haven't tested yet) is to use it in a BBQ sauce.
Any other suggestions would be most welcome!
I suggest that you Google using 'savory recipes with applesauce' as keywords. I did just to reply to your post.
I like to put apples or applesauce in curries sometimes (not traditional Indian or Thai ones so much, but more Westernized ones--simple and good comfort food). Applesauce would also be good in a pureed curried root vegetable soup. Curried apple and parsnip soup is GOOD!
We used to cook salmon fillets in a mixture of apple sauce, curry powder and onions. I've used it in meatloaf / turkey burgers too.
If you cook it down a bit, to apple butter consistency, it makes for a good smear on most grilled proteins.
