5 stars, delicious & easy! But the way the instructions are written it makes it way more complicated than it needs to be. If you don't notice any lumps don't mess with straining it. Also, skip the bowl of ice water bit---just stick it in the fridge & stir every few minutes, with the rest of the recipe as written.
