"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
She always baked them for Thanksgiving and Christmas. A couple of years ago, she called and said "oops I forgot the sugar," so she went back and pulled them out half way through cooking and sprinkled sugar all over the tops. They weren't very good that year, but still eatable. She also said not to tell anybody, but we cough on ;)
