    Thanks so much frozenfoodie for testing my plum sauce recipe. I love it that you swapped in special ingredients from your pantry, that is what I often do, ( the culinary intuition is usually spot on.) Fruit flavored balsamic vinegars are magical, and the cinnamon-pear variety that you used sounds like a perfect match for the plums. It is such an honor to receive an EP.

    Thanks Apple Annie for such a lovely review. I appreciate your recommending mascarpone, ricotta, crème fraîche, and ice cream pairings. Their sweetness would accent the tart freshness of this soup very well. I'm so glad the infused honey worked out well. And congrats to all! It is always an honor to receive an EP.
