This was easy to put together and ready in no time on the plus side, but, I felt the sauce lacked sweetness. I would increase the sugar to 1/4 cup next time. Also, in step 3 you've mentioned to boil it constantly for 1 minute. I felt that was too long to allow the mixture to boil - it was almost beginning to burn in about 30 seconds. So I stopped at about 25-30 seconds. For an added twist on the taste, I added a dash of almond essence to this. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
