This was a most favorite recipe 40 years ago...my family loved it! I just found the hand-written recipe tonight. I always doubled the ingredients because my family loved it so much. If you double it, you will need a large pot to cook this in. I always used a black iron dutch oven (pot). It will serve 8 - 10.
