I serve this dish as an appetizer and often add whatever ingredients I have handy, such as mushrooms or sun-dried tomatoes. Whether I serve it “as is” or jazz it up, it’s always delicious. —Todd Noon, Galloway, New Jersey
"I THINK what I enjoy most about Ukrainian cooking is the smells it creates. This pork roast reminds me of my mother's kitchen—it smells wonderful! My mother canned and preserved in the fall and always used applesauce to glaze the meat. That's probably why I associate the sweet aroma of this hearty stick-to-your-ribs meal with cooler weather."
"When we were first married, I didn't have an oven, so I made this tender turkey in the slow cooker," recalls Myra Innes of Auburn, Kansas. "These days, I rely on this recipe because it frees up the oven to make other dishes for large get-togethers."
"For years, my mother has stuffed a holiday turkey with this moist dressing," comments Kathi Graham of Naperville, Illinois. "Now I do the same thing. Its special flavor nicely compliments the tender, juicy slices of oven-roasted turkey."
