On their last visit, my parents brought a lot of ripe apples fresh from their garden. Applesauce seemed like a good idea to use a lot of them right away. Since the black jalapenos on our balcony were also doing well, it was time to put it all together. Next to the apples and jalapenos, we added the juice of one lemon and vanilla extract made with vodka.
We peeled the apples, boiled them together with a little water, the lemon juice, and diced jalapeno. As soon as they got softer, we mixed it a bit and let it cool down. It was not too spicy since the jalapenos are pretty mild. Very delicious with pancakes!
