My mother made this every year for the holidays. I always thought it was some exotic mystery thing, because she kept it wrapped in a damp towel on top of the fridge (I think the towel might have been saturated in whiskey but not sure). Anyway, we were not allowed to touch it; she only gave us a small piece now and then.
