Can I get that in whole, written down? as best you can, might turn into a book. I'm kind of looking at church book recipes, and particular event recipes, that were oral shared, because they were done every year. Anyway, do you know someone who made this that I can interview?
I don't want to put you on the spot here, but the idea of selling pints for the local fire company is fading, I am interested in getting some of these written down.
Most of these kinds of recipes are only existing in church cookbooks, and potluck dinners.
