    Hi Jen, I can't quite work out what you mean on your post. It reduces down to quite a sticky consistency but it's never been so tacky for me that I couldnt' add the oil to it. So not sure if it's something you're doing re the MC?

    Hi Stephanie,


    when end you reduce the syrup for dressing, do you up the MC on the lid? I didn't because it was not specified in the step but I got something that is really thick and once it cools down, there is no way I can mix it into the oil. It sort of harden up. Any idea?
