This is an easy/peasy recipe to make and will live in the fridge for up to a year. Although I doubt it will last that long. Easy to make with a minimum of ingredients, and tastes awesome… Oh, and by the way, it only takes about 30 minutes to makes. Use this as a base, vary the fruits… Have fun with it. As a matter of fact, if you do not want the heat, leave the peppers out. So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
