This fabulous recipe is courtesy of Sunrise Apples in Gays Mills, WI. To my knowledge thay are still the largest orchard in the state, and the family that owns it is wonderful.
I haven’t made this in a while, but trust me that it is yummy. It is definitely that time of the year to bring on apple recipes. 🙂
