In my original blog I just intermingled the recipes I mentioned in the blog. Many found this hard to follow. So in an effort to make the blogs more user friendly I am posting all the recipes and how to's for all the blogs here. I hope you like this new format. -Jan `

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.
