    Mercy's Note:

    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.)

      Just as a side note ... made this recipe this morning; haven't tried it yet but it would be helpful if people added comments to their recipes such as how many and what size jars are being used, especially if they're modifying the ingredients. I made this exactly to a tee and needed almost four 250ml jars which is roughly 1 cup each. Good thing I always sterilize a couple extra jars just in case :-)

      Excellent and versatile recipe. I normally don't like changing recipes, but I had an overload of hot peppers this year which I canned in different ways, so I wanted to keep this on the sweeter side. Instead of the pepper flakes, I used almost 1/2 cup of freshly chopped chives and it is beyond awesome. We've used it on steaks and chicken. I gave some to a friend and she made a fresh spinach salad with bacon and hard boiled eggs and tossed it with this jelly and loved it. So I think this is great for more than just crackers. I like how this is a spreadable jelly that is not clumpy at all. I also have used it on ham and cheese sandwiches and it was great that way too. I tried giving this 5 stars but it's not working at all, don't know why, but I'd give it 10 stars if I could! Thanks!

      Very tasty, more than once I have poured it over a pork roast in the crockpot. Thanks for posting!
