    SoDakCook's Note:

    My mother's version of a family tradition. My grandmother also made this, but did not add the potato. This crust is also less like a regular pie crust and stands up better to the contents of the pie. The spices in the recipe are subject to personal taste. I tend to prefer more clove. Serve with brown gravy and peas.
