      Very, very good! You prob could get away w/not using any butter I bet. It IS spicy and sweet, but not as spicy as you think reading off the ingredients! Will be a keeper and made frequently since I eat a lot of veggies these days!

      Easy, great taste, inexpensive, and good for you. There's also a lot of room for subtlety in this recipe - in the choice of pepper and hot sauce, and the fruit. I had some fresh pineapple, so I added that in place of the pineapply juice and the sugar. I might try it with just a touch of thyme.

      We liked these very much. I made them to go with my "Jamaican themed dinner" tonight and they were a hit and soooo easy to make. Great side dish for anytime. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.
