Bergy (RIP" Forever in our Kitchen)

This is honey of a soup, smooth flavour. Don't cut back on the garlic - it is just right I cooked "Greek" for Easter this year and I am sure glad that I included this recipe. I used 1 1/2 lemons and followed the recipe for the rest. Love your recipes Kitten thanks
