Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
One summer I brought this recipe with me to Greece. I think it was about 25 years ago. No one had ever tasted anything like it before and everyone in the village went crazy for it. Before I left, I wrote about 25 copies of the recipe. The only problem was that at the time you could not find corn syrup or brown sugar on the Island. I heard years later that people had substituted local honey and granulated sugar instead. Desperate times lead to desperate measures!
