Recipe by CountryLady
I use a lot of recipes from the "Complete Book of Small-Batch Preserving" to make use of fresh produce but also have a variety. These preserves are good over ice cream, frozen yogurt, pound cake, rice pudding, etc.

This is very good! I didn't preserve this, as it will be used up this week, this thickens on standing and makes a wonderful topping for French toast or on just about anything! I used frozen berries as that is all I had, and decreased the nutmeg to only a pinch, also I only used a few tablespoons of orange liqueur. thank you for another winner Marg!...Kitten:)
