Serve with cream cheese for crackers or bagels or use as a condiment on beef, pork or chicken. Also great on hot dogs, sausages and sandwiches. (I confess, a canner I am not, so I end up storing it in the fridge in lieu of processing it. It has so many uses that it sure doesn't stick around for long. Maybe, someday, I will learn the masterful art of canning.)
