Recipe by Expat in Holland

This is an oldie but goodie. I cut this recipe out of Gourmet Magazine at least 10years ago. I have changed some of the amounts of ingredients to suit my family's taste. I have since served it many times for large parties or buffets. It is great to make the night before, and reheat in a crock pot. Then keep this in the crockpot heated throughout the party. It gets raves and I cannot even count how many times I given out the recipe. You can adjust the red pepper flakes and honey to suit your taste. And the recipe can easily be doubled.
