“This has been a staple of our holiday dinners for almost 20 years.I usually have to double the recipe so there will be some left over for "left-overs" the next day!.Besides doubling well, this can be made a day ahead of time. This is definitely a family and friends favorite!Chill time is cook time. * I've tried using Sucra or artificial sweeteners, but don't like the results as well as the "real" thing!”
