How To Make

    Remove and spoon into a small clean jar, or make several batches and spoon into sterile jars and give as gifts, Keeps up to 3 weeks in refrigerator

    I recommend straining it thru a small metal strainer just to catch any bits of egg white, and make it smoother. It also thickens more after cooling
