The sauce is great. I used it on a stuffed pork tenderloin. I was awesome.

I tried this recipe awhile back when I got a summer grilling issue, and I fell in love with it. Every time I make it, everyone else agrees that it's absolutely delicious. The sauce has a nice sweet tang. With the bread, I just like it a little toasted so I don't even brush it with oil, just stick it under the broiler on each side for a few moments, just to brown and crispen it up. And then I'll just top a piece with cheese to melt it a little. Tastes great with less effort there. It's delicious! Definitely one of my favorite recipes!! And so quick and easy!

I once bought a raspberry sauce from Sams Club and I loved it. I couldn't find it anymore. This sauce sounds just like it. If it is, it should be very good.
