I hadn't intended to make this recipe public, there are many here already. It was 5 years ago today that my darling sister Carol gave me this recipe when she last visited our home - she has since passed away. It was pure chance that I looked at her recipe today and noticed her last visit was 7th Sept 2001, today's date. I had typed it into the description when I'd submitted her recipe in June.
