Very tasty, but remember to baste more than "occasionally."

WAY too sweet! Next time I'll try 1/2 the sugar.

Very tasty, but remember to baste more than "occasionally."

First I boiled whole unpeeled potatoes and water, reduced to simmer and covered for about 20 minutes. Then cooled and peeled, thinly sliced. I used 6 pounds of potatoes and doubled the sauce. ...

I made this for Thansgiving dinner and followed the recipe exactly. Everyone loved it. Thank you Ken.

Yeah! I can't believe I finally found this recipe again. I used to make it every easter (by request) and I had clipped it from the taste of home magazine. This year I couldn't find it! But here ...

I just make a slight adjustment and soak the raisins in some cognac for a few hours. :)

Big hit at Thanksgiving! Easy to make, I used Apple Cider instead of apple juice

this was good but not outstanding...unless i just didn't get the sauce syrupy enough. i let it boil but probably should have cooked it longer to reduce it a bit...too runny.

WAY too sweet! Next time I'll try 1/2 the sugar.
