Since, she has moved into an elderly home. When we were back visiting the farm this winter, I made a big batch and took some in to her. This way she could enjoy some, and share with all of her visitors as well.
This stuff is addicting! I am warning you. If you are making it, and don't want to eat it all, promise some of it to your neighbors BEFORE you make it. That way they will be waiting and you can't keep it all for yourself after the first taste.
