Passed down from a great grandmother, this recipe comes out every Christmas to be served with the Honeybaked ham. The recipe can be doubled for large family dinners.

Top Review by Chef Old Doug

Excellent recipe. Better than the one I have used for some years. Very happy with it, although I had to add a lot more lemon juice, likely due to my use of Splenda instead of sugar.
