This was great, although I managed to burn half of the batch by leaving it in the pan on the stove while serving the family. The unburned portion was great though. I was out of apples, so I subbed extra yellow raisins which added a perfect level of sweetness. Thanks for the keeper!
A winning side at Thanksgiving this year. You know it is a winner when three people ask for the recipe. What a beautiful deep purple color with a very mild sweet and tart flavor. Did make one change which was to cut the caraway seeds to 1/2 teaspoon as DM is not fond of it. Was thoroughly enjoyed. Thanks so much for the post.
