During these glorious fall days that are upon us, nothing is better than crisp fresh apple. That old saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" works for everyone, except for those with OAS.  An apple a day, uncooked, would surely send you straight to the couch for the day, and then a trip to the doctor if you have a really severe reaction.

So, we can settle for having them cooked. I love the combination of pork with apple. You can always do applesauce, but if you have a bit of extra time or want something extra special, try sauteed apples with your next pork roast.

1 pork roast, cooked any way you like (I do it with onions, garlic and rosemary)
1 blob of butter
4 empire apples, peeled and sliced
1 - 2 tsp of granulated sugar, depending on how much of a sweet tooth you have

Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add apple slices and stir constantly. After about two minutes, add the sugar. Keep stirring. Cook until apples are softened but not mushy. Serve on top of roast pork slices.

This is really good for all, even those who can bite into a delicious sweet apple without issue. Kids will eat this too, just tell them it is sugar every time.


  1. Cooked apples are comfort food - yummy! Thanks for sharing Andrea!

  2. I just want to say Thank You for your blog. I am not a creative cook at all and you give wonderfully fresh ideas for those of us who suffer with OAS and suck at cooking. Again, Thank You so much!

  3. Looooove this combination. I do a similar one with Bourbon and sage:

  4. This sounds so delicious! Ever since I was diagnosed with my oral allergy syndrome, it's been hard here in Minneapolis MN to find anything I can actually eat. I miss my baguette so much, but I'd rather not feel like crap all the time, you know?
