Personal Notes:
I was given this recipe a few years back by my Aunt Anna Mae. She is my paternal grandmother's niece. She has saved many of the old recipes to share with the family. I have made Gotgbki for many folks these last few years. My grandmother's recipe has brought countless compliments. One old friend of the family said it took him back 40 years to my grandmother's kitchen. My academy award for cooking. Good ,whole foods are the key with a lot of love.
