A nice fruity and light spicy salsa. Excellent with fish.

I found this recipe more of a jelly than a salsa. I chose not to can the recipe so I did not add the pectin and found it was much too sweet, so I doubled the ingredients (minus the sugar) and did not cook the second addition. After still finding it too sweet, I rinsed with water and chilled it. I used it to top baked fish and it was fantastic! Uncle Bill, you've done it again! A flavor extravaganza!!!
