Reviews for Sauteed Apples and Raisins
"I have fixed this recipe many times but keep forgetting to review it. Fixed it again last night and paired it with the "Moist Cranberry Pork Roast Recipe". The only thing I change is the raisins. I use plain raisins, instead of the golden. These apples are great."
"I recall preparing this recipe when it appeared in Taste of Home! I did adjust the recipe by using 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon, 1/4 cup REGULAR raisins, and either 1 tsp. lemon OR orange juice. If I remember correctly, I cleaned the pan up-these apples were THAT good!delowenstein"
