This sounds super good. Bananas, raisins, pork and OJ all together. I can't wait to try it. It's from the Favorite Brand Names Cookbook.

I have prepared this dish for Thanksgiving. It goes well with sweet potatoes in orange juice sauce sweetened with brown sugar, and stuffing as another side. To put some green along side that I add steamed broccoli as well. I have come back to it again and again - I'm delighted to find it referenced on your site!

I didn't really care for this, it seemed like there were too many flavors competing - sorry.
