  1. Does this come out of some bizarre antique southern cookbook?

    (Sounds like it would taste good with that Mandarine, tho….)

    • Antique, but not southern. It’s from the 1971(!) edition of the Wise Encyclopedia of Cookery from Wm. H. Wise & Co. of New York. It’s a great vintage reference that we use regularly, but I happened across the Manatee entry this afternoon and was dumbfounded.
