This recipe is taken from the book "the ultimate GULLAH cookbook". The book is written to remember the folks from Coastal Carolina's low country of southeastern USA. This, along with BBQ ribs from the same book, are the featured entree for the Juneteenth Holiday at the Northside Farmers Market. The neat thing about these recipes are to easily change from one taste to another taste by changing one of the ingredients. Was lotsa fun to get the tastes I wanted. Too many ribs, I better get exercising again.
