"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

I have made this recipes several ways; and it has never been wrong; a few times made it using candied juice of cherries from Mary's cherry tree.
This recipe is most delicious after it has sat a few days.

Personal Notes:
I have made this recipes several times; and it has never been wrong; a few times made it using candied juice of cherries (extra in add. to the s. milk) from Mary's cherry tree. Have used both red and green cherries pretties when both are used. Also it makes more than the 10 inch pan will hold so I usually get 2 small loaves with it also. A Haun family tradition at Christmas!
This recipe came from sister in law back in early 50's.
