So easy to make and delicious. The apple really adds to the sauce - have used both Bramley and eaters and no noticeable difference.

Whole family love this dish. We leave out the onion and use celery instead. Sometimes add potatoes, squash or any root veg. Have used both cooking and eating apples and it doesn't seem to make a difference. Might try using apple juice instead of cider.
