Saute the onions.  I add the flower to the pan at the end of this step, stirring to blend and break up any lumps, adding the liquid afterwards.

Let everything simmer.  Be sure to coat the apples in the broth mixture so they cook through.

VARIATION:  This time around I wanted to experiment with an even more pronounced apple taste so I substituted 1/2 cup of apple cider for 1/2 cup of the beef broth, still using 1 total cup of liquid for the recipe.  The sugars in the cider resulted in a slightly thicker sauce, which we enjoyed.

I like to serve this dish with wide egg noodles that have  just a bit of flat leaf parsley mixed in.  Apple or pecan pie with cinnamon ice cream makes a nice, complementary dessert!
