This was so easy to make, and I loved the flavour from the lemon juice. I didn't need the entire amount, so tried to cut it in half. Well.....I probably ended up with the whole recipe anyway, simply because I'm a little too heavy handed. First it was too thin....then it was too thick...then it was too thin get the idea, :)but that's entirely my fault. lol I don't have issues with using raw egg whites except what to do with the naked yoke.:) I'll be using this from now on. Thanks Jubes, and have a wonderful Christmas.
