"I did not put apples, instead I added 2 large Idaho potatoes, 1 large sweet potato, and half head of cabbage. It was delicious. My husband loved it. I used the exact measurements on everything else, and I cooked it in the crockpot all day. It filled my house with wonderful smells. I would recommend this stew with my added ingredients."

"This is a family favorite, especially with our boys. Even as teenagers, they would ask me to make this and now our daughter-in-law makes it for her family. The combination of pork, squash and apples is wonderful!"

"I found apple to be a strange thing to put in a stew, but since we have a ton of apples from our apple tree I thought I would try it. The broth tasted good, but the apple just seemed out of place."

"I have to admit I was sceptical about this recipe. But I had some pork that I needed to use, so I took the gamble. I knew it was a winner when I served it to my DH's football-watching buddies and they finished off the the whole pan. I should have doubled the recipe!"
