My local health food store didn't have the liquid so I MacGuiver-ed it using gel caps and a corn handle! Just pierce the capsule and squeeze out the liquid. It took about 5 capsules for 1t.

All done! Put into the fridge to set and then enjoy! Oh, you can add whatever you want to enhance the flavor like herbs, salts, peppers etc!
