Expert Tips

*To toast walnuts, heat oven to 350°F. Spread walnuts in ungreased shallow pan. Bake uncovered 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light golden brown.

Opt for cut-up pears instead of the apples, or a combination of both.

Keep apples from browning by tossing cut-up fruit with a bit of orange juice.
