Yields Serves 6 to 8
Savory applesauce
1

Combine wine and Port in small saucepan and reduce by half over medium-high heat, about 5 minutes.

2

While wine is reducing, peel all but 1 apple. After peeling, quarter, core and seed all apples, including unpeeled apple.

3

Chop all apples in batches in food processor, pulsing to prevent over-processing. Repeat as often as needed to coarsely chop all apples. Stir in lemon juice.

4

Add butter, cinnamon, sugar and raisins to reduced wine and Port. Add salt. Stir until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes.

5

Add chopped apples and stir until well combined. Cover and simmer until apples are tender, about 20 minutes. Stir every few minutes.

6

Serve warm.

The applesauce will be chunky with sweet, tart and wine flavors.
