“From Brook Lodge in Michigan. This lodge was owned by the Upjohn Company. A recipe packet was given as a gift to guests who stayed at there. I looked up the lodge on the Internet (beautiful) and it is now open to the public. I got this at a yard sale! This recipe keeps well and may be frozen. The sauce keeps well under refrigeration and is nice on sundaes and parfaits too.”
