Smoky Apple BBQ Sauce

Shouldn’t apples be part of the main dish too, sometimes? It’s that time of year for apple crumbles and apple pies, apple muffins and apple cider. Any baked good that exists can and will be stuffed with apples. It’s glorious. But should we really have to wait until dessert to have our apples and eat […]
