“Delicious, unusual, old-fashioned and beautiful. Very quick to make, even though it's cooked. If you don't have a double-boiler, use the largest of the Farberware saucepans to boil the water and use a round Pyrex or CorningWare bowl to stir the ingredients on top. Choose a bowl with a wide enough lip that it won't fall into the saucepan. Family Note: This is Mom-Mom's recipe exactly.”
