Yeah. Thanks guys. I have been struggling to find my mom’s original recipe in her writings. In 2021, I tried to make some from scratch and it was a disaster.
This year, I dug deep into my mom’s recipe books and found several different recipes but none of them were exactly how she made it. So I extracted the ingredients I KNEW she used and then delved into southern recipes dating back many years.
This was the result. I got a thumbs up from my whole family so I guess this one is going to be my new foundation to build upon.
