My friend DeEtta helped put together a cookbook of family recipes which they called "Aromas of the Past and the Present. Her family is of Danish heritage. This was submitted by Vi Nissen. I've not yet made this nor are there any cooking times. Please let me know how long it takes when you make it :)
