my grandaughter just entered this in our county fair and won a Champion ribbon with it and also won Reserve GrandChampion in food preservation with this recipe. It will be going to the State Fair. She made it twice and the second time used crushed pineapple and grated carrots . It is very good. She already has orders to make more for friends. Easy to do too.
