Reviewed Apr. 12, 2014

"I can't imagine what I did wrong. Instructions are very clear. This one just did not work out for me. I did cut the amount of sugar and even that was too sweet for our tastes. The sugar never dissolved. Even though it had plenty of counter top resting time. The amount of celery seed was very lacking. It also had way too much oil. Sorry to have such a negative review but no one was more disappointed than I was.
