Delicious. The apples added a delightful sweetness. A winner.

I served this risotto recipe with baked pork chops. My husband loved it. He's a man who seldom eats any vegetables, and a raisen would never reach his mouth! But he like this combination very much, so it is definitely a winner. Dried currants, cranberrys, or apricots could be used instead of the raisons if you wish.
