I have been using a very similar recipe for many years, the main difference being 1/2 cup of orange marmalade instead of the 1/4 cup called for in this recipe. My recipe calls for 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of allspice, I prefer the 1/2 teaspoon as called for in this recipe. Spicy and very tasty, a very good blend of flavors.
