I have been making this same recipe for years and everyone loves it. The longer it sits in the fridge, the better. Best to stir it every day to keep the flavors incorporated. And yes, it makes a big batch! During the holidays, I make it and after about three days in the fridge, I fill 1 Qt. mason jars and give it to friends who love it. It's always a welcome gift.
