A combination of sweet Braeburns and tart Granny Smiths gives this applesauce a pleasant balance. Mashing the apples creates a chunky sauce; for a smoother version, process part or all of the apple mixture in a food processor or blender. Crème fraîche gives the sauce a smooth, rich finish; substitute full-fat sour cream if your market doesn't carry it.
