My Grandmother was born in 1892. She started cooking in 1898, so this recipe is at least 110 years old. She passed it on to my mother in 1935, and my mother to me in 1962. my mother and I have made no changes to it. This recipe will make about 20 servings, or 10 at my house. You adjust as you need.
