I left the cinnamon stick out of this recipe but otherwise followed the directions. I really liked the addition of prunes to this one! This will be one of two recipes that I'll put on my Thanksgiving table! Thanks Swest! Read More

Nice balance between very tart and perfectly sweet. Love this recipe. I added a little extra powdered cinnamon and a pinch of clove but otherwise I wouldn't touch this near perfect sauce. Read More
