Versatile and delicious, this conserve reminds me of a warm cozy kitchen; you'll love every bite. I warm the conserve and pour it over vanilla ice cream as a dessert, and it's great as a topping over French toast, biscuits or even pork roast. Be sure to make more than one batch so you can give it as gifts during the holidays.—Paula Marchesi, Lenhartsville, Pennsylvania

"I made this with dark brown sugar so it's a lot darker than the picture - and it still seemed a little watery when I put it in he jars. Just finished the canning so I hope it sets up well. Was sticky in pan after it cooled a little so maybe it will thicken."
