Recipe by GrandmaG

Another dip from my "Gifts in a Bag" recipe book. This is really yummy in the fall using fresh granny smith apples. I love that sweet and tart flavor. Cook time is chill time. Yeild is estimate.

This is really good, GrandmaG. Chose it as part of Pick A Chef Nov '04. I halved it, & made the dip, snacking on it with apples, grapes & oranges. Oh, I also added just a dash of lemon juice to the mixture. Thanks ;)
