“This recipe orginally came from a Certo insert but over the years I have changed it a bit to suit our tastes. A bit of sweetness with a bite! When a plate of crackers, each with a thin layer of peanut butter, cream cheese with chives, dollop of this jelly, all topped with slices of pickled jalapenos, gets set out it doesn't last long!”
7-8 cups
