    I had one of these going about 20 years ago. Loved it. Might give it a shot again. Thanks.

    Very good.

    My mom used to make this too, when I was growing up, she would also use canned peaches too. She would use some of it when she made fruit cake and on top of the ice cream, but I was too young to have any. This brings back fond memories. Thanks for the great post.
