  1. All ingredients may be adjusted to taste.

  3. Because we are using pure cream we must Slowly bring the mixture to a very low simmer. ie just a few bubbles. In the beginning use a medium heat setting to get mix warmer faster. As the mix heats up turned the heat down. I usually touch the heat adjust knob 3 times ending on the lowest setting.
