Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I found this recipe in mom's recipe box, in Grandma Block's handwriting, with a date of 1924 in the upper left corner. As you can tell, the instructions don't seem complete, but I thought it would be fun to include it. The food chopper is probably a grinder, as the recipe was pre-food processor!!
