        The recipe isn't complete! Sounds wonderful what there is of it but there are no spices listed and the recipe says to "add the remaining ingredients" but there are none listed. Hope someone can find the remainder of the recipe.

      Re: MYO Travel Potty

      Awesomely different but very useful. I think I'll need to make for traveling with grandkids that hate to go in the woods. I'm thinking of putting a little cat litter in the bottom of the bag.

      The brown sugar gives it the color and taste of butterscotch.
