Personal Notes:
This became famous when Jimmy Carter was governor of Georgia and then President. Rosalyn shared this with many groups when asked for a favorite recipe.

I was fortunate to meet the Carters on a visit to their home in Plains when I worked on "Gardens of Georgia" for the Garden Club of Georgia, Inc. and when my garden club made arrangements at the Carter Center for the Democratic Convention in Atlanta.
