I created an account on this site just to warn everyone THAT THIS RECIPE DOESN'T WORK. It's a waste of ingredients. The sauce is thick like soft ball stage candy and will seize immediately when added to the apples. I wasted $$ and time with this and created an account on this site just to warn folks not to use this recipe.
