“Posted per a request. Cannercarol, at an extinct canning website, gave this recipe to me when I was trying to duplicate one I had tasted years ago. It's great on bran muffins (don't laugh), crackers, biscuits (and now I want to try it on scones). Prep time and cook time are estimated. Does not include time in boiling bath or standing time”
5 half pints
