Serving Ideas : It is an excellent side dish to any pork recipe, but then it does well with other meats as well. I have used it both as a side dish and a dessert, to fill turnovers, puff pastry, over shortbread, or topped with a dollop of whipped cream. Once cooled it also makes an excellent icecream topping.
NOTES : Any apple can be used for this recipe, but my family prefers a tart Granny Smith apple. I have often used dried apples rehydrated to make this side dish for my family.
It is also a good mixture to use in turnovers, or on top of pancakes and waffles.
