Couldn't resist making this one, as we love apples around here and this was so easy to make. Loved everything about this recipe! I took Paula's advice and used brown sugar instead of plain sugar and they were awesome! Had with a huge scoop of Vanilla bean ice cream for one heck of a yummy dessert! Into my keeper file this one goes!

Great and easy. Did not have oranges so used clementines. It needed to cook longer than 20 minutes in order for the juice to thicken a bit. Will keep on my list.
