    I haven’t tried this recipe, but it should not say that it is sugar free. I am a nurse and know a lot about nutrition and both raisins and apple juice concentrate are loaded with sugars.

    Every year I reach for this recipe which accompanies turkey, ham or pork for the holidays. Excellent without sugar!

    I make this every year for Thanksgiving. My family, kids and all, love it. It is tangy and just sweet enough, and very easy to make.
