This recipe comes from my friends Allison Beck [of Washington, D.C.] and Larry Chernikoff’s collection of family recipes. Larry’s mother was a Garfinkle. When I made this dish for the students in my University of North Carolina “Shalom Y’all” seminar, which explores the history of Jewish southerners, one of my students said, “This is THE BEST.”
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.
