    Hi Dottie, Our consultant looked at the recipe and in the Procedure section of the website, the Raisin-Apple and Wheat Bake recipe now reads “peel and slice apples to measure 3 cups; turn into mixing bowl and mix together with sugar, spices, lemon zest and juice, vanilla, raisins, and concentrate.”

    We hope you love the recipe!
