I've made this outstanding recipe from BBB for several years. Truly excellent. We ilke to combine it with cream to make a quick pasta sauce - similar to an alfredo sauce. Thanks, Jill

I made this a couple of days ago and just tasted. WOW talk about flavor. The flavors blend together to creat a very nice taste. I've combined this spread with balsamic vinager and olive oil for a great salad dressing. Thanks

Super tasty. It is time consuming but worth it. Beware it does pop as it heats up.
