    Made this for a Rosh Hashana dinner I'm going to tonight - yummy, but VERY sweet....  -  09 Sep 2010


    I made so many changes I wasn't sure whether to write a review or a new recipe! First, I used fresh orange juice and plenty of orange zest. I replaced the prunes with dried apricots, halved the butter, and added honey. Tasted very good and orange-y.  -  30 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
