    Excellent flavor! Also wonderful on Pumpkin Bread, to say the least.

    This spread is excellent! Great on chocolate chip bagels and blueberry bagels. A keeper for sure, will be making this a lot in the future (especially since it is so easy to make). Thanks for sharing, Lois!

    This was pretty good. I added some orange extract since I didn't think it had enough orange flavor.

    This is so good and very easy to make. My husband loves it on bagels. I like the fact it is much heathier than store bought spreads. I have made it many times!
