Wonderful on pheasant, too! Will be making more for Christmas gifts. I did remove most of the skins that floated to the top of the boiling mixture. They tasted candied and wonderful, but didn't want them in the marinade/sauce.
I canned this last year and it was wonderful as a marinade on pork or chicken!
Good tasting but only put a few holes in the cherr tomatoes
