"This is great! As good as Ken's Country French. Next time, I'll cut back on the sugar a little. I used half sugar and half Spenda"

"This was a great recipe. Because of our low sodium diet in our family we do not put any salt in it at all since the other ingredients have salt in them so that is the only modification that we did. Thanks again!!"

"Great recipe. I do however cut the salt down to 1/2 teaspoon to reduce the sodium and it still tastes good. Easily doubled, keeps very well in frig. Thanks for sharing."
