WHAT A NICE RECIPE, & WHAT A GREAT TASTING PRESERVE! I juggled things a little, using just 1 scant red chili (if there is such a thing as a scant one!), 1/2 cup of sultanas & 1/2 cup of golden raisins! I realize the flavors will blend together over time, but my taste-test sampling tells me this is going to be a real treat! Thanks for a keeper of a recipe!
