Winner, Loser, or Meh
This was very good. Uncle Meat & Potatoes ate a bite and said "Mmmmm. Ding, ding, ding we have a winner". I'd end the review here, except the next sentence out of his mouth was "how did you manage to get the apples to have such an interesting texture?" Given that he couldn't tell the difference between a pineapple and an apple I waited for independent evidence of the dessert's winningness. When petite, rarely interested in food, Auntie EQ asked for her second bowl, I knew we had a hit.
I used a 3 quart crock for this.
- 2 cans pineapple chunks or whole cut into chunks, well drained, divided
- 1 cup packed brown sugar, divided
- 3/4 cup crushed butter crackers (like Ritz), divided
- 3 Tbls butter, divided (vegans can use margarine)
