This tasty spread was wonderful and it really did keep several days without the apple turning brown. The tip of grating the apple directly over the bowl helped get all of the apple flavor into the spread. I kept adding cracked pepper & oregano to the top as we used the spread. It really was terrific. I plan to prepare this again for the holidays. Thanks Bergy!
