    Thanks Sal. Simple, easy and quick to make. Brilliant to liven up plain yogurt and great on oatcakes.  -  30 Nov 2014


    Good recipe. I would use the term "mashing occasionally" rather than stirring as stirring wasn't getting me anywhere. But it worked well and really was easy to make! Will be making this again, tasty and warming  -  01 Apr 2014


    I was surprised that a recipe so simple could taste so good! A nice change of pace from more traditional spreads.  -  04 Nov 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
