Really easy and delicious fresh out of the microwave with a scoop of vanilla frozen yogurt. And I'm definitely going to put it in my oatmeal tomorrow morning - great idea NorCalGal87! I used pecans because that was all I had on hand. This would be really easy to adjust - different nuts, different fruits, different spices. Will be making this often.
i do not like cranberries except in the can jelled. so i used 1 1/2 cups raisins and 1 1/2 cups of cherries. i can not eat nuts, so i used cherries in their place. i soaked the dried fruit in hot water and then used the water for the cup of water in recipe. this turned out very good and i am glad i found this recipe. i know it is not the same recipe as posted but it was still delious.
I was very skeptical about this recipe, mainly because I have never cooked anything in my microwave like this (usually cook things like this in the oven). I decided to give it a go, and it turned out great! Very delicious indeed, did only cook it for 15 minutes though...and I stopped every 5 minutes to stir it. We had it with pork tenderloin tonight, and we have leftovers...so I am thinking for a garnish on our oatmeal tomorrow for breakfast, this would be great!
This is delicious and easy. I made it last night and served it with broiled pork chops, and mushroom-brown rice risotto. This morning I'm having it with a savory breakfast muffin. My kids like it so much that I doubt there will be any left to try with steel cut oatmeal :/
Amazing and super easy. Found this recipe in my "Cooking for the Seasons" cookbook. I was looking for something different than my usual applesauce recipe to go with pork chops. I made a couple of substitutions, only because I wanted to use what I had on hand instead of running to the store again. So, I used Granny Smith Apples and Pecans instead of Gala apples and walnuts. I also cut the recipe in half since it made more than I wanted. Recipe tastes amazing.
I took a few liberties with this recipe, I substituted golden raisins and dried cherries for 1/2 of the cranberries and used a combination of Macintosh and Pink Ladies apples as thatâs what I had. It turned out very good, great alone or on top of oatmeal. I would cut the sugar back the next time. The cooking time is also too long as noted by other reviewers.
