Apple Tatin

READY IN: 5hrs 15mins
Recipe by CountryLady

I found this recipe by Lucy Waverman (a well known Toronto chef) in a publication about seasonal produce. It refrigerates well & stays fresh for days - if it lasts. The apples settle into a dark brown mass & cut like a cake. Serve with cinnamon or licorice ice cream for a perfect fall dessert!!

Dark brown mass is the right discription. Almost apple sauce like. Tart! I would have liked to see it stay more in the form of the slices.
