Apple jelly lightly glazes this bright medley of fresh and frozen fruits. "Since I'm diabetic, I use either low-sugar or sugar-free jelly, then add a packet of artificial sweetener before I serve it," says Janet Doherty of Belpre, Ohio. "No one suspects the substitution."
After one taste of this delightfully sweet and simple jam, people will find it hard to believe that you didn't spend many long hours in a hot kitchen. Of course, you don't have to let them in on your "secret"!
