    One word would be enough for this: AMAZING! Seriously, it is!<br/>I ate this with fresh strawberries straight from the jar and could not stop myself, it was that good! Very thick (even though I only let it sit for 12 hours) and super creamy with a mellow cashew honey-like taste. I added in real vanilla bean and that made it sinful. ;)<br/>THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, WICC!<br/>Made and reviewed for Veggie Swap # 59 June 2013.
