We listen to a lot of radio when we are cooking caramel- two hours of stirring is just the beginning. It's followed by cutting, wrapping, heat sealing and labeling. There is a war on sugar in the news right now. Remember the war on fat? The war on carbs? The war on meat? I gave up the food war a long time ago. For me everything in moderation. A great thinker and writer Christopher Hitchens has a wonderful quote on moderation.
"In moderation of course, if you insist...but how was 'moderation' established except by transcending itself just a bit?"
