This is an old recipe I found in an old farmhouse my husband was remodeling. The entire kitchen was covered in old recipes on the wall as wall paper. I took time to write them all down while my husband worked on the rest of the house. I love the story history has to tell through recipes. Here I can share my treasure with everyone who has a love for cooking. In notes on the bottom From Tivoli et Denmark.
