    ThatCaptJim's Note:

    Edna was my mother in law's mother who passed away in the 70s. This recipe is very dog eared and stained, so I assume it was well loved! I'm amused that someone in the family (later) added instructions for doing it in the microwave as well! The directions are somewhat idiosyncratic - I've transcribed them as they were written down on the recipe card.
