Delicious rich flavor! I added a squeeze of lemon and substituted half of the sugar as corn syrup to try to prevent it from freezing up hard the next day. It didn't really work, so I would suggest eating it all the night you make it, or stirring it in the freezer every half an hour, until completely frozen. Making the juice is a bit of a mess, but the flavor is really outstanding!

  3. Remove from the heat and cool.
  4. Stir in juice and taste for sweetness.
