Given the stress levels (particularly mine, for some odd reason) this week, I'm not surprised that I turned to a soothing comfort food this afternoon when a snack craving hit. I had, in a fortuitous moment Monday morning, made a batch of fantastic roasted applesauce that I had adapted from my fellow Torontonian Kevin - the post had been staring at me, daring me to break down and make some leftover apples into the goodness that is spiced, caramelized fruit sauce. I opted for a chunky blend of Russets, Honeycrisps and Mutsus basically because it's what I had in the fridge, and it was (and is) fantastic plain, in oatmeal and as "jam" on toast. Excuse me, I'm going to get another bowl...
Have a very merry Christmas everyone, I'll be back on the 27th with more goodies!
