Mama Squirrel says
Looks good and I love the idea of adding the colored chips. Not so sure about the walnuts, though, unless you’re very sure the person is good with nuts. My husband breaks out just being around walnuts. Maybe there’s something else we could substitute?
Laura Bray says
Very sweet. I have a ton of these jars (it’s my favorite brand of jam!).
Thanks Laura… I bet you could make a ton of them!
how many cups does this make? Where can you buy these jars?
Anita Singer says
How far in advance can you make these? Or how long will they keep? Thanks
