Top Review by Marmies

sorry, but I did two batches of these and I found them tough... for lack of a better word... Though on the bright side my 89 and 91 year old in laws count on me to provide them with canning, vegs and beef ect,... the really liked it! It must be an acquired taste. For me a 2 for them a 4 so we will average it out. Thank youfor posting this, it made them happy that I could share with them... For that alone it should be 5 stars! Thank you DiBi. Marmie
