Now this is a mix, not an INSTANT MIX, but a mix. This is pretty darn good for a mix! Not bad at all!! This making mixes is an idea...who's time has come! If you like lemon, you'll love this. It isn't quite strong enough to use instead of Lemon Curd, but it is great for all of those other wonderful lemony desserts we all love (whenever Pie Filling or Pudding is called for). My family has tested and approved this mix for our family use!
