I have made this just before holiday time for 3 three years now. I always triple the recipe however because I give it away. I even like it plain but certainly over things like pound cake, ice cream or anything else you can dream up is a good thing.

I put this in a 2 1/2 gallon size clear apothecary jar and keep it on my pantry shelf while it is marinating. Yes, if you know me, I put a piece of 'Press and Seal' over the top of the jar and then set jar lid over it. This type of jar is easy to stir fruit in.
