  1. Put all ingredients in the top of a double boiler, over hot water. Stir until mixture is well blended and begins to thicken. This takes only a few minutes; it will continue to thicken as it cools.
  2. Pour into hot, sterilized jars and seal, or into scrupulously cleaned jars for refrigeration or freezing.
