My Granny Leona Hayner made it this way and my mom (Helen Ferrell) and the Hayner family always said I was the only one who could make it like Granny did. It's a hard recipe to write down because I've always just grabbed and dumped when making it. Sometimes I add a little celery seed sometimes I don't.
