"I have been making this for years , it's so good! A must have on our Thanksgiving menu"
"make it every turkey day.."
"Ever since I found this recipe years ago, I make it for Thanksgiving. It turns out great, makes a lot. I have tweaked it a little bit to my liking, mostly cutting the fruit into bite size pieces and we love it warm or cold!"
