Rosseyes , I’ve been making this recipe for years as the recipe calls for above. No adjustments needed. Still prefer Granny Smith, though we have used other apples on occasion.
I'm wondering if there's any other ingredients that are key to this recipe and any others you're coming up with recently I'd appreciate it
