This recipe is so old that the instructions say to place the ingredients in a "tin basin" and cook! So many recipes that I have have little or no instructions, just a list of ingredients. Sometimes the list of ingedients is vague also. Example: butter the size of an egg for an amount! This sauce goes great on gingerbread!
This recipe has been served at every Christmas Dinner since I was a little girl. It was a recipe of my grandmother's that my mom and her sister have been making for 60 years, and now, the daugthers are making it every year too. (We love it so much, that it gets made for other special occasions so we don't have to wait for Christmas to eat it!)
