It's just okay. I found the recipe in the Ball Complete Book of Home Preserving, and I made it today. My son didn't like it at all, I think it was the honey. I bought enough fruit to make a double batch, now I'm glad I didn't. I'm going to make it again, but with just a sugar syrup. My husband and I don't hate it, but we won't have it every week.
