I was given a lovely gift last week- a huge bag of windfall apples! My youngest daughter is not a fruit eater, but she loves stewed apple, and the whole family (apart from me!) love spiced apple cake, so we already have lots of uses for them, but I also remembered that last year I had a go at making a bbq pulled pork that incorporated apple into the sauce to make a really delicious pork dish- the girls both loved it, and it was a fantastic dish that provides meals for days afterwards!

I have oven baked this, as I didn’t start it until lunchtime and I wanted it in time for the kids’ tea, but it would also be awesome in the slow cooker!

Notes

This would be lovely with some extra added spice- I plan to try habanero tabasco in it!
