A few years back, I was mailed a few recipes, from my Aunt's, Penn. DUTCH friend.
Everyone knows ..I collect recipes!
This is one of them.
The hard working Colonial Pennsylvania Dutch, were hard working people. And very frugal!
We can learn a lot from them, from some of there recipes!
I Wonder? Where did they get coconuts, back then?
