We were of 2 minds on this quick-fix recipe w/a nice presentation. I liked it a lot, but DH less so. Except for the addition of orange zest, I made it as written. In the end, we felt it was too sweet for us but the combo of flavors worth tweaking to suit our taste pref. The 2 things we discussed were to reduce the amts of jam & marmalade *or* the addition of cream cheese to the sauce to *mellow* the sweetness. The latter appealed more to DH who shares the European affection for sauces. Made for the *Aug Aussie/NZ Swap* & thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
