A side dish recipe by Jan Dulka for the "From the Governor's Pantry" cookbook, Lind House Association in New Ulm, Minnesota, July 1988. The book is dedicated to the many volunteers who had donated their time, talents and money to restore the John Lind home. Jan noted that the flavors of this recipe are enhanced each time it is reheated, and it freezes quite well.
