    • I am sure that you will be able to decrease the sugar if you wish to try this out. I typically never use all the sugar in any recipe and I think here it will work to decrease it so give it a try.

  1. How interesting!
    I’d love to try this! Would be nice to have someone who knows how to make it, since I’d probably mess it up somehow!

    Thanks so much for sharing your recipe at the Homestead Blog Hop!!
