      A wonderful flavoursome low GI recipe I did use sultanas instead of currents and when I went to make I found I had no cinnamon sticks so used ground cinnamon which still worked out well and I reduced to 3 serves but still had a small amount left over until the DM realized and she devoured and the only other sub I did was we are not keen on coriander/cilantro so used fresh parsley from the herb garden, made for Healthy Choices tag game, thank you Charlotte J for a very delightful side for our meal tonight.

      A very nice blend of sweet and savory! We enjoyed the light cinnamon flavor and felt this went very well with our grilled pork roast. I did cut the recipe in half but other than that made as written. Thanks for the post.
