CARAMELIZED APPLE SAUCE/COMPOTE

April 24, 2014

Every good Schmarrn in Austria comes with apple sauce! Vanilla and some rum give this recipe a little something special.  Apple sauce is a great way to use last years apples you stored in the cellar. My apples were not very sweet, so you might wanna use less sugar if you have sweeter apples.
