Made the recipe with granny smith apples. Used this as a side dish to Giada's recipe for Pork with Sweet Onion Marmellata. Great compliments to each other. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe after dinner and served with vanilla ice cream. It is yummy and smells like a wonderful cider while it cooks. I would definitely recommend it for a quick and easy treat! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not sure if this is supposed to be a dinner side or dessert because the measurement of sugar was just too much. I used slightly tart apples and it still came out too sweet. Would make again but with way less sugar. item not reviewed by moderator and published
