I got a can of these from my wife's grandmother last year, she bought them at a craft show those were fantastic. I found some at a grocery store and can say that they are not the same I hope your recipe matches the ones from the craft show.

I hope this recipe lives up to the craft shows....I had a similar experience....I had some from a local jam/jelly maker and I tried several times to recreate it. I think I nailed it with this recipe. Let me know how these turn out!!

looks great! By the way you should put the link to your YouTube video. Instructables doesn't embed videos well.
