Love this recipe, set perfectly, brilliant for cheese, given a Jar as a gift too, hope they enjoy it as much as I do. Next time I might spice it up a bit more and add some Red chillies! - 15 Dec 2015


I followed this recipe to the letter, it has been in the jars for five hours and so far no sign of it setting. - 10 Dec 2015
