Kitchen Tips

1. For a smoother texture, pulse together cooked fruit mixture, apples, walnuts, wine, honey, cinnamon and salt in a food processor until very finely chopped.

2. To toast nuts, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet and toast in a 350F oven until fragrant and beginning to brown, stirring halfway, about 8 min. Alternatively, toast chopped walnuts in a frying pan over medium until golden and fragrant, about 8 min.

3. This dish is traditionally made with sweet apples such as Gala or Golden Delicious, but we liked a combination of a tart Granny Smith and a sweet Golden Delicious.
