We really enjoyed this for Thanksgiving, but I had to up the spices a lot. I probably added another 1/3 cup brown sugar, full teaspoon nutmeg, and lots of salt and pepper. Immediately after cooking it was ok, but not great. I let it sit (I had prepped it earlier than I had meant to) for about an hour and then reheated. At that point it was really really good. I'd make again, I'd just plan on upping the spices.
