Jamie's Story

My great-grandparents immigrated from Lithuania in the early 20th century and brought with them this potato recipe that I have been eating my whole life. My grandfather actually had to teach my grandmother to make it, who in turn taught my mother and my mother taught me. Definitly an heirloom recipe.
