Made this recipe with one change & served it as a dessert ~ Because of the time of year I used 1/4 cup of finely diced dates instead of the raisins! This was a meal finale that we really enjoyed, & I'll be making it again over the next couple of months, the next time using dried cranberries, & another time with the indicated raisins! Thanks for a great keeper recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag]
