    OMG! I made this with a fresh peach diced and 1 tablespoon of water. Everything else was the same. It was amazing!

    Delicious! A very tasty and easy to make appetizer which I served w/ Ritz and Club crackers. Don't think it would serve 6-8 people b/c it's so good that four of us gobbled it up in no time!. A keeper!
