This recipe is a chunky type jam. I will enhance a variety of dishes, and makes a wonderful snack on top of cream cheese, served with crackers. From my Texas Home Cooking cookbook, by the Jamisons'. Prep time is an estimate.

This is a wonderful recipie! Just like in a restraunt! Not very hard to make either- once everything is cut up, that's the biggest part of it.

This is so pretty and very delish!!! It's my favorite to give as gifts. The jam is also really good drizzled over ice cream!
