I very much appreciate reading what changes others have made to a recipe. I have no smell, and can taste only sugar and salt. I made this recipe today. I live in the country.....and made some substitutes...some based on others changes. I could not find cardamom seeds in my small town, so used cinnamon and nutmeg...as a previous poster did, also did not have enough white sugar, so added some brown...as a previous poster did. I had only 1 jalapeno pepper, but by some reviews, figured it would be hot enough with only 1. Thought I had cilantro in my herb garden, but did not, and used sweet basil. I have no idea what either of these herbs taste like. Added a bit more applesauce, to empty the bottle, and slipped with the fresh lemon, and added a bit more juice. Everyone loved it, and I will be making the salsa again on the w/e, to serve with chili lime tostitoes, at a friends pool party. Thanks to much to ALL WHO POST...I value everyones opinion, and regularly read reviews before using a new recipe.
