This tasted nasty to me. I'm not sure why. My only suggestion to anyone who is going to try it is this: Toss just a little of the fruit with the glaze until you try it. Better to throw out a little fruit than all of it - it's just to expensive to waste. My friend Herkimer has some but hasn't tried it yet - I'll update my thoughts if need be. As it stands right now - I won't be fixing it again.
