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.
What a nice change from traditional freezer jam. I used crushed pinneapple and shredded my carrots. It's great with cream cheese on toast or crackers. Thanks for posting
My family loves carrot cake, I made this as an alternative (sp?) because it was low fat. I warmed it a lttle and added frozen yogurt. Great
