This apple sauce is made in a tagine, the Moroccan heavy clay cooking pot with a cone-shaped dome lid. I love cooking with tagines. If you have a favorite tagine recipe, I would love to hear about it!
The monarch butterfly is in remembrance of Gwen, my English Grandmother, who passed away from bone cancer on Nov. 21, 2010. She was 90 years old and was as fiesty as ever until just a few days before her death. On the Saturday before, a monarch butterfly flew by me. It made me think of her soul, on its way to making its journey to the afterlife. Thanks for taking care of me Grandma! I will love you always.
