MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 6, 2013

"It's a great standby as it's quick and easy. The taste is fantastic, and I've experimented with different fruits with great results. Orange or pineapple are every bit as good as the original."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 12, 2011

"I used pork chops and it was great. I may double the "sauce" next time. My husband insists on having "gravy" and this sauce was tasty on rice."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 6, 2011

"This was a huge success! I used Smucker's Sugar-Free Peach Preserves and added a vidilia onion. Served it with/over whole wheat cous-cous and a hearty vegetable salad. It was loved by all and reheats perfectly."
