Looks complicated

I think that you should post some recipes that teenagers can try simply at home, where they dont need apparatus but a good pair of hands.
Looks interesting

I would definitely try it. I don't know what apparatus the previous poster is talking about, seeing as all that's needed is an oven - I'd be more worried about the teenagers using alcohol.
Going to try this tonight

I'm not sure what Laura means - this isn't complicated! The only apparatus needed is an oven dish and a bowl!

This is the easiest sharon fruit recipe I've found.
Can't wait to try it

Maybe Laura doesn't have the other needed apparatus - an oven
I tried it.... twice!

My sharon fruit was a bit on the hard side. It came out okay but I decided it would probably be better cut up into bite-sized pieces (using a standard knife - no "apparatus" ;-). For the second try, the fruit was also a bit hard (I guess it's kind-of late in the sharon-fruit season) but I think in general it is much better cut up in bite-sized pieces. I also melted the butter and just mixed everything together in one big bowl, put it in a souffle dish and baked. It was better this way!
