    Bayhill's Note:

    Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Turkey. From the "International Vegetarian" cookbook. I haven't had the chance to try this recipe yet. This is a typical dessert of Turkey in which apples are cooked in a spiced sugar syrup and served with yogurt and almonds.

      I made this before Christmas and totally forgot to review it, yikes! Anyway, this was a hit in my book. What's not to love about all of the ingredients especially when they come together so tastefully! I made 2 servings and one I had very warm and one cold and enjoyed it both ways. For me it would be warm in the winter and chilled in the summer. Apples and spice with creamy yogurt, yum.

      Really lovely recipe. The cloves perfumed the apples as they cooked and a marvellous syrup resulted. The yoghurt sauce is a wonderful accompaniment. I personally preferred this dessert cold - straight out of the fridge.
