Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is the jelly Elizabeth made at Christmastime each year and often gave away as gifts. Something about the pineapple mixed in gives the apricots a tropical flair. It is a lovely shade of orange. There is nothing better on a crisp piece of warm toast than butter and these preserves.
