When my grandmother passed, I received all of her cookbooks. One has in her writing "Oldest and Best" and the inscription " The kingdom of heaven is like leaven which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal, till it was all leavened. Matt.13:33. The book is tattered all around the edges, stained and has notes and writings all throughout. It is my favorite recipe book. This recipe was handed down through generations from this book.
