Because the camera was in the kitchen

I snapped a few shots of the process of making the best, and I mean yummiest apple sauce/ topping, ever.
Originally made to go on top of pork chops (you know Pork Chops and Applesauce?)
This stuff is good, like really good.
It can go on top of pork chops, pork tenderloin, ice cream, or just eat all on its own.
I like to add whipped cream.

First take 4 Gala apples and slice with apple slicer.

Then dice into bite size pieces.

Get out the golden raisins.
You'll also need a lemon.

(Mine was already zested for the pork tenderloin.)

Toss apples into sauce pan.

Add the juice from the lemon, 1/2 cup golden raisins and 3-4 tbs. of brown sugar, and a cup and half of apple cider.

Next add a tsp. of cinnamon and half tsp. of nutmeg.
Over medium to medium high heat, let it boil for almost 10 minutes.

At this point your house will smell divine. Did you ever make apple sauce in school? Have an apple day? Remember that scrumptious smell? Yup, now your home can have that same aroma.

Eaten as a treat with whipped cream and cinnamon.
But again, its original purpose was for the top of pork tenderloin.
Seriously, this is good stuff.

I'm sure it'd be even better with chilly weather out, but I wouldn't know about that.
