Applesauce

Side dish or dessert??

When I was growing up, applesauce was always a side dish, especially if we were also having mashed potatoes.

This guy I'm in love with from South Philly insists it is a dessert.

What do you think?

It's almost apple picking time, so soon I'll be making batches of apple sauce to serve beside chive studded mashed potatoes. I told Lou when he's real old and too feeble to fight me, I'm going to feed him the applesauce with the mashed potatoes on the same fork

Me, too!

Apple sauce is traditional here with roast pork.

But, it is great as an accompaniment to or integral part of various puddings, too.

It could be used either way really. For me it is a dessert. So why not make a side dish for you and a dessert for him

When I was growing up it was always a dessert. It was a nice treat for me and my brother Bill.

both, plus a vehicle for children's medicine, and a way to reduce fat and calories in baked goods..

i don't think i new that i evertook a pill as a kid, but i was forcefed tons of applesauce.

funny you should mention this, because we had applesauce with dinner, as a side dish with shake-n-bake pork chops. actually, mine is more of a topping for the chop.
but it has to be ice cold when it goes on the hot pork chop.

Applesauce was always a dessert when I was a kid. As an adult, it's a serious source of annoyance. Every time I cook any dish with pork. SO insists on a little applesauce with the pork.
