This recipe is *so*good*!! I made it for the first time for dinner tonight. I had to stray from the recipe just a tad, substituting orange bell pepper for the green (because I don't care for green). I didn't have the spice blend or the primary ingredients on hand, so I made my own blend of equal parts fresh ginger root, cinnamon, paprika, ground clove and allspice/nutmeg blend. The spices were awesome around the red and yellow "Jazz" apple. I will make this again. Awesome.
