“This is a time consuming recipe but absolutely my favorite. I have had it written on a page that is really beginning to fade. I am sure I have had it for about 20 years or more. I don't make this often, because I am the only one that eats it....wait a minute...maybe I should make it more often...silly me ..Cooking time does not include soaking time.”
