The amount of orange juice overpowered this. More like orange cider. But I'd try it again but much less orange juice. Read More

I made this for neighbors at Thanksgiving and they took some to their friends. I heard they all raved about it. My neighbor reduced the leftover cider and used it to baste a pork loin roast. Read More

As is this recipe is not very sweet. I feel it tastes better with an extra 1/2 cup or full cup of sugar (depending on your sweetness preference). Read More
