The Daily Dish: Zesty Applesauce


listen icon Listen to the Daily Dish
Everyone loves a good applesauce. So why don’t you try the zesty version straight from Northern Italy. I know that once you have tasted this dish, a recipe found in my latest cookbook, Lidia Cooks from the Heart of Italy you will never go back to the plain applesauce.

Set the applesauce in a pan. Make your own or pick some up at the store.

Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, some freshly grated horseradish…and yes horseradish root is available at most grocery stores. It resembles a carrot and, like a carrot, you can peel it and shred it.

Let the apple, lemon, and shredded horseradish cook together.

Once it is perking add ½ cup of heavy cream.

Stir well to allow all of the flavors to combine.

Serve this delightfully tangy applesauce warm along side a luscious ham, turkey, chicken, or roast beef.
