Recipe by Kim in Walnut Creek

Ina Garten prepared this on her Thanksgiving special. The reviews on the food network website were outstanding, so I tried it and wholeheartedly agree! Preparation time includes chilling; prep and cook time is under 30 minutes.

Delicious with lemon and orange zest, bits of apple, raisins and walnuts. And so pretty, too.
