This is a great addition to any Mexican dish. I made it from combining a friend's recipe and a recipe from a canning cookbook. You can adjust the heat by reducing the amount of hot peppers and hot sauce.—Ellen Katzke, Delavan, Minnesota
Quince sweetens this marmalade as it simmers and fills the house with its distinctive autumn aroma. It’s great on toast or bagels for breakfast in the morning! Thanks to our Test Kitchen for the recipe.
My friend and I had tried a fruity jam with jalapenos at a local vineyard and this is the version I created. At work there was a taste test comparing my different versions of the jam, and this one was voted a favorite. I like this fruity spread on crackers with cream cheese, on hamburgers or even grilled cheese. For extra heat, add the seeds of a few jalapenos to the jam.
Round out a meal with this fruit dessert, a colorful medley of apples, strawberries, peaches and pears that simmers in a simple lemon-and-honey sauce. Top off servings with low-fat vanilla yogurt, granola or both. It's a wonderful dessert that everyone will enjoy...and it features those good-for-you fruits that will help keep your and your family strong and healthy.—Kate Selner, St. Paul, Minnesota
Here's a fruit spread that captures the best tastes of late summer. I like that it's low in sugar and not overly sweet, which lets the fresh peach flavor shine right through. — Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake City, Utah
At a retreat in the foothills of the Canadian Rockies, I sampled a marmalade combining rhubarb and raisins. I loved it so much that I went home and tried to duplicate it. I added the strawberries to make the marmalade even sweeter.
