Very good and easy but you do have to plan ahead because these are not ingredients that people will have on hand.

MY REVIEW

I made this recipe when it first came out in Taste of Home in 1994 and made it for years. I lost the recipe and I am very happy to find it again. It was a favorite with all that tried it.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 15, 2011

Have made similar recipe many times using Oj instead of cranberry juice, no sugar, and cinnamon as spice. I never found it necessary to thicken sauce. Also added chopped onion and mushrooms.
