This is the best recipe EVER!!! Thank you for posting. I've used this recipe before and then moved to another country where I didn't have access to my recipes because they were in storage. I"ve been searching for something online that was identical. This is identical. No alternations needed. It's perfect.:) Read More

Great flavor! Loved the addition of lime. Don't skimp on the sugar. I only used a cup and one half and it wasn't sweet enough. Read More
