Horseradish and applesauce may sound like a strange combination but it is delicious. Over one weekend I fixed it for my friends Thom and Linda, and their sons, Karl and Ben. The latter was not even 6 years old but he loved the combination and remembers it fondly even today. If you can please a youngster, you must have made something good!

Tangy Applesauce
 Serves 4
   
6 large apples tsp. ground cloves
cup water tsp. ground cardamom
cup sugar 2 tbsp. horseradish
1 tsp. ground cinnamon  
   
Peel and core apples. Cut into quarters and cut each quarter into 1/4-inch pieces or smaller. Put apples into a medium pan with the water, sugar, cinnamon, cloves and cardamom (if you have it) and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Put apples into a serving dish and blend in the horseradish. Serve.

Note: You won't find many uses for cardamon. If you don't have it, leave it out of the recipe.
