I also increase the volumes as we pick apples in the fall for canning. This blend can be mashed for the tastiest turnovers. With the additional of alittle water and thickening
makes excellent pie filling or cobblers with cranberries and walnuts. And they are just plain flavorful and spicy as they are. Often increase volume and serve at pot lucks and gatherings in the winter- a special treat from the usual dishes.
