        Beverly, thanks for bringing this to our attention. The recipe works fine with fresh apples, but in the photo they are caramelized. Peel & quarter an apple. Heat small sauté pan. Sprinkle apples with a touch of sugar and place in the pan. Move the apples around in the pan until they are caramelized. Let them cool and slice. I will update the recipe to reflect these optional steps. :)
