"This was wonderful! It is one of those dishes that absolutely warms your soul. This was the perfect addition to our dinner on this cold, snowy night! Yummy!"
"Took this to a potluck and received rave reviews. Only change I would make would be to add a little corn starch to the syrup to make it a little thicker."
"I make this every year for Christmas. My family loves it!"
"Excellent, only next time I'm using pineapple tidbits and cutting up the fruit to make it easily to eat."
