“I'm not sure where the original recipe came from. My friend's Mom was a distributor for Ultra Gel so I may I got it from her many years ago. Anyway-this has been a fantastic recipe. A lot like a great restrauant pie. Now I know some may not like that but everyone I share this pie with wants the recipe. We use it for pie, ice cream topping, over fresh biscuits or spoon it straight from the jar.”
