I made this to take to a potluck supper and it was very popular. The recipe does make a lot so will serve a big crowd. I omitted the nuts due to my own nut allergy, plus you don't know who else may also have such an allergy at this type of gathering. Instead I substituted raisins. Delicious! I will make this again!
