makes approx. 6 half-pint jars

I had so much fun creating this recipe in the summer of 2013!  It was even more fun to bring a couple jars to a family gathering for taste-testing!

This flavorful conserve is delicious atop goat cheese, compliments Foie gras beautifully and makes an excellent addition to a Prosciutto and Pancetta plate. Enhance its flavors by sprinkling it with a touch of Himalayan sea salt prior to serving. The possibilities are endless and the flavors abound!
