ALL DONE ,READY TO DEVOUR.

Thought I’d dig up an old family favourite but change how I serve this delightful recipe to my guests.  I plan to use my mason jars to impress my guests for our family Sunday luncheon.  I just love the idea of using my jars as they store easily in the fridge and each pint jar holds a decent serve. These are also great to take on picnics or as a gift to the hostess when your invited out to lunch or dinner.  They are also wonderful addition to Christmas or Easter family gatherings  as they transport so easily.
