This is a favorite appetizer. Pour it over some melted Brie or softened cream cheese, and serve with crisp crackers for a really incredible taste sensation. The number of jars is dependent on what size they are.

Good recipe, but the canning instructions are unsafe. Inversion canning is not considered sanitary and botulinium toxins could remain in the food.
