Recipe by mollypaul

This is just lovely served over vanilla ice cream or pound cake. This gets better the longer it sits and steeping time is not included in preparation time. It's also useful as a preserve. From the Creole chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947.
