Here is a fun way to use up apple preserves. Or, be creative and change up the jelly and preserves to develop a variety of flavor combos. My favorite is apple jelly with orange marmalade.

"Delicious! I made it as stated and after a taste test added additional horseradish as suggested by Beema in previous review. I served this with Wheat Thins and Ritz crackers. I love that I usually have these ingredients on hand, so no need to run to the store when unexpected guests arrive. I will make this again. Side note - I have renamed it for my own purposes to Preserves & Horseradish Spread so I will recall how I loved the horseradish aspect and the use of preserves. The original title makes me think of a dip for apples. LOL"

"Made this for New Year's Eve, and my guests raved. I added a bit more horseradish and a few dashes of cayenne pepper to give it an extra kick. Served it with the original Ritz crackers. This should be called a Spread, not a Dip..."
