Personal Notes:
I was given the recipe by the Eatons, and it became a family favorite. I gave up and threw in the potholder when I made a batch of 10 quarts and within a month, Curt and Mama had eaten it all. I will never forget coming home from work and finding Mama eating it from the jar with a spoon!!!
