I love this recipe, it tastes amazing! It would be great with lamb or pork chops. Note: Remove those pesky stickers when you buy the apples, but try not to blemish the fruit. These stickers tend to get harder to remove as the fuit ages.

    Let cool a little, then using a potato masher, mash the fruit, but leave chunks, it's really tasty with pieces of fruit still big enough to chew.
