I was really looking forward to eating some old fashioned honeycomb but I followed the recipe to the letter and it went black and my kitchen was full of steam with the acrid smell of vinegar which made my eyes water lol, I think I should have judged the timing myself, thank you for the recipe I will try it again sometime - 19 Jul 2013
