Ok this is the first time this has happened to me....have made this recipe 100 times. I made a batch yesterday....Peaks Apple Blossom. Poured it into 3 - 3# log molds and tossed it in the oven to spend the night. Took it out this morning and it looked like it had some "sweat" on it. I thought...wow that is weird so touched my finger to it and touched my tongue with my finger...ZAP! CRAP...lye pockets! Well I was going to toss it in the garbage and decided to cut the logs to take a look at the inside. Nothing...no lye pockets...no air holes...nothing. The inside looks great...the outside has this little bit of lye sweat on it?? Do I toss it? What caused this? I'm baffled...... Oh yea and it was definately thick when I poured it.....mushy mashed potato consistancy.

Yea I have used it one other time.....and it was fine. It was a MUCH smaller batch...but fine. And of course this was a special order....24 bars. AND I used all the FO I had left...so had to quick order from Peaks this morning to get some on the way .... so I can remake this if I have to.....LOL

I had this happen on my last batch. I was shocked. This had never happened before. It sweat for a few days and then all was fine. I was freaking out too. I really thought I would have to toss it. Just give a few days or up to a week and see what happens.
