Congrats on the blue ribbon. Sounds good, but I have to watch the spicy foods.

I understand about the spicy foods, too. With this recipe the red pepper can be adjusted to suit. It would also taste fine without the red pepper, too.

We not only loved it with the kielbasa, we think the sauce will be great on ice cream too. But I didn't try it as the kitchen re-do got in the way and I ended up tossing the leftover sauce out. :-(

I loved that this recipe had the fruits in it, something we don't get very often with the high prices of fresh fruit, so using canned was a tasty way to enjoy fruit.

The only substitution was 1/8 cup blueberry jam instead of the grape because the kids ate all the grape. We had it with garlic bread but it would be good with any starch: mashed potatoes, noodles, etc.

We made it outdoors in one pan on our coleman stove, wow, my dh was mowing the lawn while I was cooking and I didn't even need to call him to dinner.

While it was simmering I went to the garden and cut some bok choy and we had that with ranch dressing. The combination of the smoky kiebasa with the sweet and spicy sauce (and it wasn't hot spicy because the sweet tempered it) along with the crisp and tart bok choy with the cooling ranch dressing was perfect. Iced tea on the side. No need for dessert tonight, maybe that ice cream tomorrow with the sauce.

Ellen I am glad you like it. Yes you can omit the hot peppers or cut them back. I never thought of using the sauce over icecream. I bet it is good. I will have to try that.
Have a wonderful day.
