Although I now live in the States, I am originally from Devon, England. So I was drawn to this recipe; my Mother used to make something similar, but I hate to admit it , this was better than hers ( sorry Mum)I could not find hard cider here in TN so I added 1/4 cup brandy to apple juice; It was superb, a delightful combination of flavours.Thanks for posting this, its a keeper !!!
This was easy to make but seemed to be somewhat bland to me.
