Get Creative by trying different combinations like strawberry-rhubarb or strawberry-peach!

Storage Tip:  If freezing for future use, be sure to leave at least 1" of space at the top of the jar to allow room for expansion.  Otherwise, the jar may shatter.

Vegans:  Use maple syrup to sweeten instead of honey.
