    I just love this recipe.  -  26 Feb 2012


    I can only rate this from my experience - a total disaster. First it wouldn't go any higher than 102 degrees using two thermometers in case one wasn't working. Then, when I turned the heat up, it boiled over my cooker from the 'medium' sized saucepan I used. I then put it in two saucepans and, as soon as it got to temp, it burnt. Totally ruined. Sorry but I won't be using this recipe again.  -  16 Dec 2012
