Recipe by Member 610488

Traditional Russian recipe that is great as a side dish with roasted meat or just by itself as a main dish.

Easy to make and tastes great -- especially if left in the refrigerator overnight. I also missed out the salt and pepper and next time, I'll leave out the sugar as the apple sweetens it perfectly.
