"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Born Irene Moore, Grandmother Rivers grew up in Chesterfield County, South Carolina in the early 1900s. She married William Perry Rivers, Sr. from Ruby, SC and had four children, Margory, Lib, William Perry, Jr (dad) and Brenda. Yearly family trips to see grandma were incomplete without a huge bowl of this wonderful concoction, with a pitcher of freshly brewed sweet tea! It was Dad's favorite. I often caught him standing in grandma's dark kitchen, snacking on Nana'r Pudding by the light of the fridge in the wee hours of the morning. Mmmmmm...just thinking about it makes me hungry for some. A Great finish for any Southern meal. Thanks, Grandma!
