Top Review by Aunty Peach

it was awful. My hubby winced when he tasted it. My kids would not touch it. It never really made a nice syrupy sauce. I put it in the frdige for a few hours to see if it would improve. Yuck. Do NOT do that. Perhaps trying brown sugar instead of white? Perhaps adding real syrup instead of trying to make your own? Perhaps 3 cloves instead of 6? Something has to change. I will NOT be making this again.

  3. Cool for 10 minutes before serving.
