“Recently I received a package from my friend and swap partner who sent me a lovely jar of black Raspberry preserves. These preserves were too special not to put into a recipe. I adapted a recipe I had that called for apricot preserves and in the end the results were a very pretty and wonderful dessert. Hope you enjoy as much as my family and I did”
