I found this receipt written on an old sheet of stationary with a letterhead containing an address on Meeting Street in Charleston, SC. It was written with a fountain pen in a very lovely script and signed with the initials RMC. This is a classic, traditional receipt from Charleston. Benne' seeds are the same thing as sesame seeds. Charlestonians call recipes receipts. I have copied this recipe as it was written. I wish you could see this lovely, handwritten receipt.
