The water in this recipe should be listed as part of the ingredients. I changed the number of servings from 10 to 3, and printed out the recipe. When I was making the sauce, I just went according to the recipe, so when it said to add 1/4 c. water, I did, not thinking that it wasn't adjusted to one third the original recipe. I had to dump my first batch down the drain. That being said, when made according to the way the recipe intends, this is a very nice wasabi sauce.
