"I created this recipe, it is really good just put on turkey like a gravy, it is also very good on pork ribs and chicken. Thank you for trying it, I am now Susan Matthews and living in North Carolina with my new hubby who loves my cooking!"

"I didn't like it when it was first done cooking. I made it in the afternoon so I could just reheat it at dinner time. At first, I could just taste the vinegar. When I reheated it later, it was perfect. There's a good balance of sweet and tangy."
