    Our only complaint with this recipe is that it didn't make more! Nice, easy recipe. We used fresh fruit that was overly ripe. A little worried that it would not 'set up' but eventually did thicken and everyone enjoyed.

    DELISH!!! So easy to make and the kids LOVE it! Tripled the recipe and threw everything in the crock pot on low for about 6 hours (it may not take as long with the original portion recipe). The house smelled A-MAZING while it was cooking. I canned some and put some in 2oz plastic containers for the kids lunch. Will be hitting the farmers market up again and making another batch next weekend!

    This stuff is amazing! We made a huge batch of this and canned it so we can enjoy it all winter.
