Dear Margaret, so nice to see you. Aren't you glad that Spring is here finally.

I hope you do get a chance to try it.

Have you ever made Apple
Dumplings? There is pop in it also. I guess now that I think about it, I have put it in several things that I have made over the years. I hope if you make it you like it. Hope you are having a wonderful week. Come again. connie
