Apple Maple Sauce
This reduction is delicious on ham and pork. If you’re short on time, substitute 1 ½ cups of applesauce for the fresh apples.
INGREDIENTS | MAKES 3 CUPS

- 2 whole cloves
- 1 teaspoon wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup real maple syrup
- 1/4 cup apple jelly

Place apples and cloves in a saucepan; cover with water.
Simmer, stirring regularly until apples are soft.
Put the apple mixture through a sieve.
Return the applesauce to your pan and add all remaining ingredients.
