This is a great recipe. I make it every Yule for gifts, and my family asks for every year. Good blend of tastes, easy to make. I like to eat through the year too.
A jar of these preserves is nice for neighbors, friends, and coworkers. Package this with a pretty spreader. Serve on English muffins, crackers, or as a condiment for baked ham.
