Recipe came from "Tasty Tidbits" a "Current" cookbook. The mixture of ingredients were so unusual I had to try it. It tastes wonderful. Sweet, rich, yet has a kick (but not overpowering). The men devoured it and the women did their fair share. Give it a try and don't let the seasonings intimidate you

I made this last night for our New Year's Eve party. It was a definite hit! I think I will make a pork roast with this as the sauce. It's absolutely wonderful. Sweet and hot. Thanks so much for the recipe.

From the title I almost expected to be irradiated! This was consumed by two little teenagers all within 20 minutes. All I can say is that it must of been good. Made for Taste of Yellow LifeStrong Event.
