Made a full recipe as written for Billboard Tag except for leaving out the salt as DH is salt-restricted post kidney transplant. Then I halved the yield to use it in 2 ways -- Savory to baste marinated grilled chicken & sweet as coffee-flavored icing by adding powdered sugar to frost banana muffins. I esp liked the latter & favor a lemon flavor for fish, so will prob use it mostly for poultry meats. Thx for sharing this multi-use recipe w/us. :-)

I chose to have this on a muffin. Did not sweeten it at all and it was wonderful! Only added about 1/8 of a teaspoon of salt. I tried pulsing it in my mini processor and it would have taken a long time, so just whizzed it up and it worked perfectly. Nice and creamy! Thank you Ellie for sharing this repeater! Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
