I found this recipe in an old recipe book that came down through the family from my Maternal Grandmother. (One of my Grand Aunts made sure I got it when Nanny passed.)
My comments and interpretations of the recipe are in parentheses. I transcribed this from a faded notebook that has all the recipes in my Nanny's handwriting. This has been a trip down memory lane.
I hope you can use it. I have never made it and it's been 35 years since I've tasted it.
