REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
I thought the preserves turned out perfectly. The amount of nutmeg and sugar was fine for me. Gave away 2 jars and kept the rest. Husband has already opened the second of our stash!

Good recipe but to much nutmeg and you can use a little less sugar

This worked great for me. I used 4 ounce jars and everyone commented that the preseves were great the jars were just too small!
