I did the same thing today and you could definitely tell the difference. The icing just wouldn't dissolve off my bowl and measuring cups and I only used HOT water! It was very weird and appeared to be very greasy. My family has noticed a difference with the frosting I made - said it tasted grainy. I am very disappointed with Crisco and will be shopping for the old stuff tomorrow. I have a separate refrigerator. Don't you think I could buy a bunch and refrigerate it?
I totally agree. I made one batch of this stuff, way too greasy! Normally I soak all of my bags, tips, utensils, couplers, etc in my KA mixer bowl with very hot water and Dawn, then put everything in the dishwasher, and I have no greasy residue left, this time I did, I had to resoak, and run them through the dishwasher again.
Even the icing tastes greasy, leaves a greasy coating on your lips after you eat it.
My first shipment of high ratio arrived yesterday, I'm going to make a test batch today
