“This is a tradition in my family and everyone looks forward to it. It's almost like a carrot cake and the sauce may sound a little odd but I never have it without it.”

  5. Fill the pot with water halfway up the side of the molds.
  6. Cover with lid and steam for 2 to 3 hours.
  7. Check to make sure the pot doesn't run dry.
