    It could be compared to you eating green apples, then taking a tablespoon of castor oil and a dose of salts.

    Instant and thorough cleanout.

    I treated the manure pile to one batch. First go it didnt set so I reboiled it and it was getting quite dark and tasted like I had used brown sugar. I suppose I might have made some fudge out of it but by this time I had a real hate on for fondant making!

    The link I provided for my candy boards avoids this and that mess of cooking it. Add water and stir. They are taking to it very successfully.
