  5. Looks delicious! The sweet and tangy flavor would go nicely with so many foods. I prefer to use honey and maple syrup as sweeteners. Do you think that would still work? I’m thinking it would since you heat it up. Thanks so much for sharing this with our readers at Let’s Get Real. I always look forward to reading all of the great posts you bring.

      Honey would most definitely work, maple syrup would give this particular dish a funny flavor though, hehe!
