Wonderful stew. I used Granny Smith apples. I had to use cranberry juice because I didn't have apple. Made for An Apple a Day.

I made this for dinner tonight and it turned out to be delicious!! I think I'll add another apple next time though since that was my favorite ingredient. Thanks for the recipe!!
