This is a recipe my grandma used to make; she was raised by a lady my mother said was called Mrs. Gilmore, no one knows my grandma's origin; but my grandma lived in Alabama and married a solider. My mom was born in Alabama too-(my mom's name is Magnolia) and made this recipe taught by her mother and me by my mother...very old recipe.I was born in 1940- my mom in 1921 my grandma in 1901-grandma Gilmore in 1885...
