Christmas Eve Dinner

For Christmas eve dinner I made my favorite dish: Pork Roast. Mmm! Which gave me the opportunity to use some of the homemade applesauce. We'd gone apple picking in the fall and I used my Roma food mill to make about 17 jars of applesauce: with and without sugar, with brown sugar, pink, not pink, with or without cinnamon. We like variety! Tonight's jar was pink, with sugar. We also used some of the three bean salad I made last summer. I put golden beets in it since I didn't have 3 beans. It's green beans, shell beans, and the beets. Strangely enough, the beets are no longer golden. The color seems to have leached out into the pickling solution. Still good, though...

For dessert we had blackberry ice cream with the chocolate raspberry sundae sauce - heated a few spoonfuls for 30 seconds in the microwave and spooned it over the ice cream. Wow!

  1. somehow the applesauce is one of the more surprising
    aspects of this edible hobby. I mean, really, how good can applesauce be? Donna's applesauce is good. I expected to really like wild blueberry jam. I didn't expect to really like the applesauce, but I was wrong. The purity of the applesauce really worked well with the pork tonight. Yum!
