    I served this as a garnish/topping for pork tenderloin. Everyone loved it. We had leftovers the next day with our breakfast. It was perfect for both morning and night!

    I always make this with the Spiced Pumpkin Bread, and I love it! It is so easy and good, although sometimes I do cut the sugar a bit. This year, my sister requested it for Thanksgiving as a side dish, so I made it with a LOT less sugar. It needed a little something, though, so I added in some fresh rosemary. REALLY good, everyone loved it with the turkey.

    This is a nice recipe that is perfect for the holiday season. I added in 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and a few sprinkles of cloves, which I thought added nicely. I think a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream would make this an incredible dessert.

    An easy and delicious dish. Makes the house smell great too. I often make this for company. It is delicious as a dessert, served hot with vanilla ice cream. I microwave it while we are eating. Also made it for a brunch, served over oatmeal. It is super versatile, and plenty of leftovers.

    Baked apples is pretty hard to mess up or not like - so this recipe is fab. Really easy and since it goes in the microwave, it can cook at the same time as your main dish. How convenient! Will definitely make again and again.

    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 that’s 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.

    Turned out very good albeit not too attractive looking. My husband especially liked the cranberries addition. I only microwaved for 10 min., then placed a lid on it and allowed it to continue to cook on its own after removing from the microwave. I thought it turned out perfect. Was even better the next day. It developed a pleasant spicey syrup that really added to the enjoyment. A great fall side dish!

    I made this for Thanksgiving and everyone LOVED it! No one even knew it was a light dish. This recipe is definitely a keeper!

    Makes a very large quantity, but is easy to make and delicious! Awesome in 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.

    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 :/

    My husband and son love this recipe! I used a bag of cranberries and raisins. It was super quick and easy too.

    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!

    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.

    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.
