The Finished Product
This dessert is so good, I had to post 2 pics!
This recipe is definitely in my top 10 favorites so far this year. There is no way to describe how good this is. The flavors of the strawberries and apples compliment each other perfectly. It is sweet and perfectly spiced. The strawberries also give the apples a beautiful red tint. I wanted to lick the pot clean. I will make this several more times in the next few weeks. I can't think of a better way to take advantage of strawberry season! Grade: A.
