I used pineapple preserves. This was great! Despite my husbands doubts about a "sweet dip" with veggies he ended up devouring most of it. This would also be good with apples and pears.
Made this for a family get-together yesterday and was surprised that it only got mediocre reviews. The ones who like hot and spicy food complained it was lacking something and the ones who normally complain about spice or heat really liked it. I made this recipe as written using sugar free apricot jam and two large jalapenos. Thanks for the post.
