This is a note in my mother's handwritten cookbook.
"Mrs. Peschal's recipe. In 1961 this recipe was 100 years old, Mrs. Peschal an old farm lady was an old lady in 1930. She was a friend on my parents and moved to Indiana to live with her children. This is her recipe she gave my parents."
I remember getting a teaspoon of this when I had a cough as a kid.
