I've been a member of this site for several years and this is my first rating because this is an amazing recipe. I followed it to the 'T' the first time, which is why I gave it the five stars; however, I have adapted it multiple times and the base recipe has been found to be extremely flexible. Canned mandarin oranges is a must substitute. I increase the cinnamon and add allspice, ginger, and any other 'Fall' type seasonings on hand - all of which I measure by sight and smell. I've also begun to use cranberry dried fruit and then toss in some frozen blackberries, bing cherries and blueberries depending on what I have on hand that I froze during the summer. The recipe is amazing standing on its own as a side dish and/or also smothering cream cheese for a cracker dip. It freezes excellent and we make a few batches to freeze in single serving for throughout the year. Last, I am all about making life easier so I throw everything in the pot in large chunks, cook, cool and take a mixer to it to blend flavors and chop fruit chunks further - no need to puree anything :)
