Sauce Margaret Recipe – Perfect for Apple Picking Season


Yep. I’m still happily digging through the tin I rediscovered containing endless recipes and cooking tips my grandmother had collected during the seventies. The recipes and stories have been such a hit that I decided to create a new area for them here on the blog: Gram’s Recipe Tin.

My grandmother’s given name was Margaret, so I was pleasantly surprised to find a recipe called “Sauce Margaret”. It’s ideal for this time of year, too, as it compliments sliced and baked apples. If you’ve just gone apple picking or heading there soon, be sure to give this recipe a try. And let me know how you liked it!
