This is wonderful. I used ground cinnamon instead of sticks because I didn't have any on hand, and it still turned out great. - 28 Nov 2003 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love this recipe! I always add a little more orange juice than water. I add a little honey to make it a little more sweet than tart. Additionally, I add a mixture of cornstarch and water to make it a bit more thick. The flavor is so good and it just gets better as it sits in the fridge. - 31 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was FABULOUS!! I added 1 cup extra of brown sugar (Dark Brown Sugar), and 1 tablespoon of ground cinnamon, and then used 4 tablespoons of corstarch mixed with 5 tablespoons of water, (this is after I simmered the sauce for an hour) brought it up to a boil again and then simmered for another 15 minutes and chilled overnight. The consistancy was thicker and more jelly like, which is what my family is used to. GREAT RECIPE! - 26 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
