Likes this recipe alot! Used less sugar substitutes as a personal preference & taste. Have tried it on family & friends & got rave reviews. My cousins, Martha Stewart & her siswter-in-law the other Martha, couldn;t wait to make & can. It is delicious served hot over a short bread or with biscotti & coffee; or cold with Good Quality frozen yogurt or ice cream. We plan on adapting the recipe with reduced sugar and canning for the holiday gifts for family & gift baskets.
