Apples and pork go together like a hammer and nails, so pork was definitely going to be the meat product of choice. I really wanted to make this an apple pie with pork in it (as opposed to a pork pie with apples), so I decided it would need spices like allspice and cloves. I even resolved to use a fruit crostata dough with less sugar in it. Still an apple pie with less sugar and bits of pork in it sounded kind of flat and to be honest, a little weird, so I did some more thinking. It needed something that could bridge the gap between sweet and savoury… something that could meld the light taste of the apples with the richness of the pork and crust… something like caramelized onions!
