[Sca-cooks] apple fritters at Pennsic

The first part of of the recipe I used for this dish described an applesauce 
being made. However, the apple was cooked by baking, as opposed to being cooked 
in a pot (I am unable to get to my notes, since I'm at work). I know the flavor 
profile will be different. But for my own ease for a event with an all day side 
board on a small field kitchen, I choose to use the commercial applesauce. I do 
intend to try making the applesauce as described... I think it will be nice with 
the fall harvest of apples.

I've had some luck with apple fritters by grating the apples and mixing the
grated matter in with the batter.
