Late Summer Saturday Supper...enhanced by early autumn apples!

I wanted something not too heavy for supper last night and not too taxing after two late nights, so I went for something around
apples as I collected a whole basketful of them on an afternoon wander around the grounds.

Obviously it had to be an apple sauce as I had some gorgeously perfect pork chops quietly ruminating in my fridge. I made the sauce first – 500 gm of apples peeled and cored, 20 gm castor sugar and 100 ml of water – all into a pan with a lid on a low heat until all had blended into a tangy toothsome concoction. I pan fried pork chops til golden with garlic cloves and black pepper. I also wanted something cooling, so plumped for a simple warm potato and red onion salad – using garlic mayonnaise. I steamed some broccoli and kale, taking it off in time to leave the broc with a bit of a bite. I have to say that it was a very satisfying supper – simple – cheap and bursting with flavours and textures – the apple sauce helped it all on its way – as did a very nice bottle of tempranillo thank you very much that had insinuated its way into my presence whilst cooking. I am easily tempted!
