Sunshine1944 where do you get sugar free honey? Grocery store or specialty shop? Didn't know there was such a thing. I thought all honey was pure sugar?! Good to know.

I use Splenda to cook with as Stevia turns sour when cooking with it. have found that you only need to use half the amount of Splenda to sugar. IE: 1/2 tsp splenda to 1 tsp sugar. It's also a lot easier to get. FYI-there is also a sugar free honey out now that tastes just like clover honey.

This recipe sounds delicious! I live out of the US and can't get the Pace roasting sauce (and am unfamiliar with what that is). Does anyone know a suitable substitute that I could make or buy? Thanks so much!
