Recipe by Dreamgoddess

This is one of the Zaar recipes that I adopted. I hope to prepare this one soon and will post any modifications that I make to the recipe.

I made this recipe for the Adopted Recipe Swap. This is a really good recipe. I enjoyed the nice citrus taste from the orange juice. I did cheat a little. I used home canned pears, because I didn't have any fresh pears, and I left off the green peppers. I just didn't think the peppers would be to our liking at all. Overall, a good recipe.
