  1. Eww! Too much vinegar! Wish I would have read the reviews first!
  2. Not good at at all! I would have given this 1/2 star if I could have! The amount of vinegar was WAY too much! It went right in the trash! I looked at some other recipes that added a few tbsp. I ended up putting 2 tbsp and that was PLENTY! The only positive thing I can say is that the apricot and applesauce was a nice combo! I wont be making this recipe again... although I will make it with my alterations but probably cutting the recipe in half, since it made more than we could eat.
  3. This was TERRIBLE! Maybe try this with a tsp or tbs of vinegar. I put a 1/3 of a cup and it ruined the sauce. Ugh so bad.
  4. Omitted the honey entirely since the applesauce and apricot jam were sweet enough. Also omitted the garlic. Used only 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Added it to Chinese restaurant fried rice and egg rolls. Yum. For me, it works and definitely much better than store bought sauce or what is served in a restaurant. YMMV
  5. I made this minus the preserve since I didn't have any. I added extra honey and crushed red pepper too. Went very well with my egg rolls. Thanks for sharing Aroostook!!


Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
