Description Edit

This recipe came from an estate sale. I obtained it when I purchased the family collection from the Mclean Estate in Irving, Texas in 1982. Notation on card says this is a true civil war recipe. Hardships never stopped people from finding a way to cook good meals. The Edgefield Adviser, March 1, 1863. From The Confederate Housewife.
