My husband's Grandma Skinner used to help make this with the ladies at the Methodist church, and they would sell it every fall. I don't know how old this recipe is, but we used to buy it in the 1960's, and they had been making it a lot of years before that. Makes a lot, so you may need to can the rest. Don't know how it would freeze. I vacuum seal things, and to make a pie and freeze it would probably be fine.
