Recipe from the former Winifred Townsend, Jamestown, ND who served this on our first visit together back in North Dakota after having met at a Captain D’s in Charleston, SC. I detected her North Dakota accent in the restaurant and approached she and her husband, Emerson. We visited every year they wintered in South Carolina and on every one of my return trips to North Dakota. I think of her every time this is made in our house.
