  • This sounds good. I'll have to try it next time. What is agave nectar and where can I find it? I also find cloves expensive, any suggestions?

    Agave nectar is like honey, which you can use as a substitute. I buymygroceries at Kroger and found it in the health/organic food section. I used dried cloves that I already had in my spice rack. I don't think it would make ahuge difference if you omitted it?
