Vidalia Onion Applesauce | Paleo, Vegan & Whole30
This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own. I only share my honest opinion.
Vidalia onions are my most favorite onions ever. They are very sweet! No, really! They are quite special, as they are only in-season from about mid-April until early to mid-September and are grown in about 20 counties in Georgia. Those specific counties are the only ones allowed to grown Vidalia onions and sell them under the “Vidalia” name. These sweet onions are named “Vidalia” after the town of Vidalia, Georgia, which is where they were historically grown in the early 1900s.
Many people enjoy applesauce with their pork. We sure do, and every time I make it I think about how I should make it more often. Homemade applesauce is so easy, and, because it only has one ingredient, it’s something that you can whip up pretty easily. Just the same, we love sautéed onions and make them pretty often, too. Mixing sweet onions and apples seemed like a no-brainer, and then I did it, and, sure enough, I was 10000% right. Vidalia onions and apples go together beautifully, and I will forever make this recipe each and every Vidalia season.
Okay, so maybe you won’t cry from cutting them, but you might cry when Vidalia season is over because you will have to wait until next year! Make sure you jump on the Vidalia Onion train and look for them at your local grocery store so you can enjoy them this season.
__________ INGREDIENTS 1 Vidalia Onion 2 apples 1 TB olive oil 1/3 cup water Directions: Carefully slice onions so they are long and thing. Pour olive oil in a medium, size skillet on medium heat. Add onions. While onions are cooking, slice apples into smaller bit size pieces and add apples to sautéing onions.
Sauté onions and apples for about 5-7 minutes until onions are becoming translucent and apples are soft. Add 1/3 cup of water and cover and cook for 5 minutes on medium heat, stirring once or twice, until all the liquid is gone.
Turn off heat. Apples and onions will be soft. Use a potato masher and mash a few times, keeping some big pieces.
Place in a serving bowl and serve with pork, grilled veggies or eat by itself. It’s very tasty!
