"Haven't made it yet but will, what can I substitute for the Grape Juice, don't want to buy a bottle for 1/2 cp."

"I was able to have desert ready for company after church on Sunday by making a shortcake the day before and serving this sauce over it. It was delicious! I should have shut the crock pot off a little while before serving it so the sauce would have time to cool. But that was my fault, not the recipes!"
