This recipe was passed down from a dear friend of mine, Catherine. She first introduced this simple and tasty recipe to me in 2003 and it has been a regular fall recipe since. This recipe is great with these types of apples:  Jonathan, McIntosh, Winesap, Granny Smith, Northern Spy, Greening and Rome Beauty.
