  1. Love this! Definitely the recipe for this sauce. Thank you! FYI, found the Pineapple Preserves at Kroger.

  2. This sauce was great! My husband saw that I was using a whole jar of preserves and horseradish. He requested I make half in case he didn't like it. Afterward, he had no qualms in using a whole jar. He loved it! Thank you so much for the weekly meal plans. It's saved me time and I'm serving delicious meals every night. My whole family, even a picky kid, rave over the meals. Keep up the great work!

  3. This reminds me of the sauce Outback's served with their pork chops. I don't know the ratio for sure, but it was orange marmalade and horseradish sauce. Oh so good !!

  4. I kinda-sorta made this last night. I can't find pineapple preserves to save my life, so I used apricot. And I accidentally bought extra-hot horseradish instead of regular. But MAN was it good! Hopefully I can find the pineapple soon, so I can try it the "right" way!

    1. I'm planning on making this tonight to go with some grilled chicken tenderloins. I could not find pineapple preserves either. I bought a can of crushed pineapple in juice. I'm thinking about cooking down the juice to thicken it. And go from there. Do you think that will work? Any advice would be helpful!! Ha!

    2. Pineapple Preserves are with the jelly. I bought the generic version at Publix.

      Not sure how it will turn out with crushed pineapple since it isn't a jelly consistency. Let us know.

    3. Unfortunately, I live in the land of Wal-Mart, and our shopping choices are Wal-Mart. (And a few local grocers, but their selection is limited.) According to the WM and Smucker's websites, pineapple preserves are not sold at any store within 100 miles of me. I think I'm going to resort to ordering from Amazon! In the meantime, I snarfed down some leftover chicken fingers and dip yesterday at lunch- even better after sitting in the fridge overnight!
