My Mama passed away 2 weeks ago (November 2, 2011). She was an amazing cook. She made this recipe in a huge iron dutch pot when we were growing up. I guess she had to double it or triple it because she raised 7 children. All the wonderful recipes she made are great memories of my childhood and the reason cooking is my passion.
