This is now a staple at our house-we just won't be without it! I think the crystallized ginger is the KEY ingredient. It really gives it a punch! Have begun to use craisins instead of raisins--less sweet & adds color.I tried it with apples, but we didn't like it as well as the original with peaches. Next will try with apricots. I do not do the water bath, just tighly close jars & put them in frig. The lrg amt of vinegar seems to do the trick on preservation. Used it with the soon-to-be -famous Donald Trump turkey burger Oprah raved about. Thanks again for a terrific keeper!

The taste is really good, I made two separate batches of this, but I will rate it again in a couple of weeks after I open a jar of it, I did increase the red pepper flakes to 1 teaspoon, and I think it really could have been more for our tastes! thanks Ev!...Kitten
