"We make a batch of this each year. It has a nice blend of sweet and tart and is pretty in the jar, too! It is great on toast or muffins, but equally good as a condiment with pork or chicken."

"We have made this jelly two times and don't have much left. We keep sharing it with friends and they can't get enough. We have a rule that you must return the empty jar to get more jelly since the jar is the most expensive part of this recipe!"
