Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 1 hour 20 min
Servings: 2-3 10 oz jars
1 Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring frequently. When this mixture comes to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 1 hour. Stir frequently.
2 While the mixture is cooking, begin the process of boiling glass jars that have lids in a large pot. Once the water comes to a boil, turn the heat to low to keep them warm.
3 Once the mixture has thickened, fill the jars with the mixture leaving ½ inch space and close tightly. Place the jars back in the water and bring to a boil for 10 minutes.
4 Cool completely at room temperature before placing in the refrigerator.
5 Enjoy as desired. Pictured with sesame seed crisps and gorgonzola cheese.
