Thanks Joyeanna for getting back to me on this ~ glad they came out good, would of felt bad ~ the original recipe came from Taste of Home and I was making up gift jars at Christmas time and no one that I gave it to said that they had a problem, so wanted to make sure everything turned out ok with these.
