I have made this recipe since it came out....I give it as gifts and serve it for the holidays....I too substituted Orange rind for the tangerine. Tastes great. I also have added some ground ginger and ground cloves sometimes. GREAT, EASY and DELICIOUS what more can you ask for..
This is a FABULOUS recipe! My family loved it and asks me to make it all the time! I did make a small change. Not that it needed it, but, I thought it would add to the flavor. I added 1/8 tspn of ground cinnamon to the recipe. Also, here in Chicago tangerines are next to impossible to find in the winter so I substituded tangerines for oranges. I had to increase the rind from 2 tspns to 2 1/2 tspns. All in all, this is a keeper!
