“Another gem from the shores of Georgian Bay, this recipe is the first place winner in the 2005, local contest, celebrating apple harvest time, and sponsored by the Meaford Express and the Town of Blue Mountains, Courier-Herald. This contest is an annual event, and entered recipes are featured in a cookbook produced by the sponsoring newspapers. Perfect for a "Pot Luck", or church social.”
