Super easy. I did cut down the sugar to 1/4 cup and it was plenty sweet that way, at least for me.

Awesome, awesome, awesome! A big hit especially with my dinner guests. I used fresh pineapple and regular carrots cut into big cubes, made it ahead, then reheated. Flavor was amazing.

This is so simple yet so delicious! Goes well with roast chicken. I've passed the recipe on to others and they all say the same!
