It was a little too sweet for my taste. Definitely would NOT cook it for longer than 4 hrs, I added 4 more oz of water then recipe called for & it burned in 6 hrs. Would make it again with less sugar & less cook time

It was good but nothing spectular,made a crock pot to share at our polling station. I was hoping for raves from the crew but only drew a few it was good comments. Oh well will look for another recipe for our next election. If you are up in the air about this recipe I would tell you to give it a try and see for yourself, I thought it was good enough for a second try with some tweaks.
