We loved this dish. The flavors compliment each other so well. Only change that I made was to add 1 teaspoon of splenda brown sugar rather than the 4 teaspoons of regular brown sugar. a great dish that is in my favorites file. Thanks PaulaG.

Oh me, oh my, these were good! I will be making this over & over and have already added the recipe to my holiday plans. I think it would be wonderful with turkey and for guests. I loved the combination of savory and sweet elements. Everything worked together so well. The tiny hint of cinnamon was just right. Thank you for sharing this terrific recipe Paula!
