It sounds wonderful, I intend to give it a try.

It seems to me that kmkasprzak and wombatt need to take lessons in English and spelling before criticizing others. Such awful grammar and spelling shouldn't even get you out of the 3rd grade. I think you should take your own advise.

If you haven't tried the recipe why do you rate it so negative. Also if you don't like some of the ingrediants the same goes. Maybe others are more adventurest than you.

Rest assured, I could never rate this because it would never see the light of day in my house. Mushrooms are bad enough, but vinegar syrup??? Ain't gonna happen.
