Great tutorial! I'll try to get the hubs to watch, because he doesn't know how.

But I did not have the ingredients so I used grape soda. But for some reason I still felt I should review and just give 3 stars.

I wasn't a fan of this recipe.... It just didn't have any flavor. I made it EXACTLY as the directions stated but it was just too bland. This is why I gave it one star. I won't be making this one again.

My grandmother immigrated to the U.S. from Austria and her recipe is essentially the same except for the addition of a lid over the pot and SOMETIMES includes a pinch or two of salt (to taste ) in the water prior to heating it.Bottled or softened water works best. Often times when finished, I wait until it has cooled then add ice ! A refreshing change from the ordinary to say the least.

Great recipe, what a lifesaver. I do have one warning. Keep an eye on this wonderful concoction, I let mine bubble for a few hours at a lower temperature to bring out the flavor and when I came back to taste it, IT WAS GONE! I knew right there I had a winner, and a thief in my family... Silly kids :-)
