Delicious Mimi, This made a very good dessert, would be good with some cream or ice cream. I couldn't get Quinces here this time of year, so added a few dried cramberries, This recipe is a keeper.

This was awesome--even though I just used all apples since we didn't have any other fruit on hand. I'm going to try it with canned sweet potatoes and apples tonight to serve as a side dish with a pot roast. Mmmmm!
