Absolutely wonderful!!!!! I cut recipe in half for just myself but did use the whole apple (Braeburn). Had no sage so used thyme instead. Served with brown rice. So, so good! I love the apple and green pepper together, and the sauce is marvelous. This is a definite "Keeper".

Tried this today, it was excellent ! i just added more spices: dash of cinnamon, dash of ginger, a very small slice of ginger root pickles,a dash of thyme, squeezed in half a small lemon and half a tsp of viniger. I ommitted the onion as i didn't have any. The flavors blended in greatly! it was super ! thanks alot for sharing :)
