We wanted to highlight our rich Fredericksburg history alongside our fresh, local produce! The Fredericksburg Parent-Teacher Association has been publishing the FREDERICKSBURG HOME KITCHEN COOK BOOK since 1916. The following recipe was first published in 1948 in the 6th Edition of the cookbook and then reprinted in the 150th Anniversary of Fredericksburg 13th Edition. Thank you Mrs. WIllie Grinke and the PTA!
