    I used the recipe exactly as it is. Perfection. After refrigerating it was a perfect thickness. Tart, delightful. Great use for my backyard lemons!!  -  26 Dec 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    First time making this. The color is beautiful; tastes great and leaves you wanting more. However, does the recipe really call for 1/4 cup of zest, or is this a typo.  -  28 Nov 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
