"I made this for our Memorial Day picnic and my family liked it. I thought the pineapple was a nice added flavor. You would need to add extra jalapeno if you really want heat. I thought that it wasn't all that hot."

"This was way too sweet. No one liked it at my cookout. I am going to try adding an additional teaspoon of vinegar and mustard to it, hopefully that will cut some of the sweetness."

"I am very sorry, I don't want to hurt the submitters feelings, but this was terrible! I was so excited about making it, I love pineapple. I thought it would taste excellent, but it didn't. It came out crunchy and vinegary tasting. Mine was very watery, not thick at all. I was hoping for so much more."
