    Excellent very taste I added a little more sugar to cut into the spice and tartness a little  -  28 Mar 2015


    We loved this recipe. We made a few minor changes by deleting the fennel and using diced tomatoes instead of sauce. I also did not use the water.  -  04 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
