Muy rica la receta, muy fácil de hacer, le agregue unos toques de mi cosecha, a la sidra y jugo de piña le agregue media taza de almibar de pinña, y al marinado para el glaseado le puse siete dientes de ajo triturados, al final licue todo eso para hacer una salsa para acompañar la pierna y quedo esquisita.
