Deborah Lamensdorf Jacobs [of Atlanta, Georgia] received this recipe from her mother’s friend Miriam Graeber Cohn, whose cookbook, The Country Gourmet, is filled with mouth-watering recipes that evoke her Mississippi-Jewish-German-Alsatian-Cajun roots. Serve this not-too-sweet pudding as a dessert or as part of the meal, perhaps with roast turkey or chicken.
Note: Recipes in Marcie Cohen Ferris’s book Matzoh Ball Gumbo were compiled from a diverse mix of Jewish Southerners who have blended religion and region through home cooking.
This dish was featured as part of our Recipes for Passover photo gallery.
For the pudding:
