Top Review by Cherokee T.

I first had this recipe at a boyfriend's grandparents' farm in Va. It was DELICIOUS! I loked it so much that she wrote the recipe down for me, and I have kept it for the last 18 yrs! Unfortunately, I have packed it away in my many moves, so I was thrilled to find it on here! Thank you so much for submitting it for us to enjoy! Sincerely, CLC
