I was given this recipe 20 years ago. It's wonderful! I have had raves from CA, WA, OR, HI, ND, MN, FL, and VA! This is a US of A recipe. The best apples so far, have been Spitzenberg, Spitzenberg-Braeburn, Gravenstein, and this year, I will try a straight Braeburn. I like it because it doesn't call for cloves--although I have added 1/8 tsp for my husband, on occassion.
