I made this for this past Thanksgiving to bring to someone else's dinner. It was a big hit. My husband usually will only eat the strained jelly but he loved this. Said there's no reason for the jelly if I have this. I've made it again since Thanksgiving and had it with chicken and turkey meals. Also put it in a burrito wrapper with chicken and rice dressing, heated in my pannini maker - delish!
Before I made it, I read the top 100 helpful reviews and incorporated their suggestions into the recipe by cutting the sugar in half and using mandarin oranges which I broke up with my fingers.
The second time I made it, I cooked the berries with the liquids and spices until the berries burst. It was much easier to help them burst without the other fruits in the mix. Once the berries burst, I added the other fruit and cooked until it was thick.
Since we have nut allergies in the family, I toasted the pecans but didn't add them until I was able to take some plain sauce out first.
I can't imagine being without this and plan to always have some in the fridge. Next time. I'll double the recipe and freeze it in smaller quantities that would be used within a couple of weeks. Thanks for a wonderful recipe!!
