I got this recipe years ago from Bon Appetit. Perfect for the fall season.

This was absolutely wonderful tasting with a mild maple flavor. It would certainly be a great dish for Thanksgiving as it enough to feed a crowd! It was a bit heavy on the currants and a little light on the apples, but otherwise great harvest comfort food. Thanks, NurseDi!
