“I believe this dish dates back to the 1700's. I first tasted this at a Restaurant here in Columbus called the James Tavern which has since closed. It recently came "back into memory" and I've been searching for a recipe that is close to what I had so long ago. This is the best one that I've seen that seems to have the ingredients, consistency and taste that I remember. I found this recipe on the Cook'N Recipe Organizer web page (which i have but can't find it on my computer). I haven't prepared this yet, but feel it will be fantastic and plan to make it today as I can't wait to taste it! Prep time is a guesstimate as I will use my wizard chopper. Hope this will be a taste bud treat for you!”
