Author Notes

I learned this recipe from my grandparents. There are varying stories about its origin. Some say it came from from my great-grandmother and others the wife of a family friend. Despite its origins being shrouded in the mist of time, is is my go to recipe. At the time my uncle shared it in the parish cookbook, he said that it had been in the family for 60 years. So now we are closing in on the century mark. The longer it cooks the more flavorful and thicker it gets. Serve with your favorite ice cream, preferably home made vanilla. —Sauertea
