    Unbelievable…… Truly unbelievable. This is so incredibly amazing I am not so sure what to say. I made a half batch because I didn’t have 6 cups of sugar. I let it do it’s thing in the stove and then transferred it to the jar. About 10 minutes later I treed it alone and then with some cream cheese on a cracker. I know this will be a hit and make me famous!
