I only made the sauce, but the honey for me, was over powering. I did add more apricot preserves but the honey taste was still to dominate.

These were very good egg rolls. I used only 1/2 a teaspoon of the ceyenne pepper and it was just right. the saucse made a nice compliment to the spice in the rolls.

Preparing them took a little time. However, they tasted great! The sauce was too sweet. Using the sweet & sour sauce packets from your local chinese restaurant is much better.
