My deceased husbands grandmother made this recipe up. she was in her 90's when she died. She and her husband killed hogs every winter and had lots of pork fat back .. So she found many ways to make dishes of of it. This is one of them ..Only my husband had the recipe. I make it often now with garlic breas as it is so unusual.. Buter delicious.
