Most traditional recipes for crème caramel are made with a sugar-based caramel and a rich creamy custard. This fruity version uses apple juice, making it a much healthier but no less delicious option.
A non-reactive saucepan is one that is made from stainless steel or glass rather than copper or aluminium. The benefit of them is that they don't cause a reaction when they come into contact with acidic ingredients.
Made it healthier. I put thin slices of apple between the caramel and custard, it added a bit more texture and tasted great - 22 Nov 2009
