going to tote a conventional oven along for preparations :P
I was trying very hard to be nice, but also let everyone know that
this product has a rather odd limitation. Looking at the ingredient
list, I couldn't figure out why the product could not be heated in a
conventional oven when heating in a microwave and boiling in water on
a stove top are the recommended methods of heating.
I wonder if they recommend not heating it over on open fire ?!
