I got this recipe from the cookbook 'Mary Dunbar's Favorite Recipes', which was published in 1935. I believe Ms. Dunbar was the spokesperson for the Jewel Tea Company, which manufactored spice products, in addition to other food items.

Although I haven't yet tried this recipe, it sounds good, especially for those who don't care for tomato based sauces.
