This is a recipe I got from my sister. I always lose it and phone her every year to get it again. Now it should be easier to find!! I like this recipe as there is no water in it and just the right amt. of sugar and spice.

Just the right tartness - Iadded some black peppercorns & onions. I cut the recipe back to 1 pint - We are really enjoying them!
