I was given this recipe on Michaelmas, or the Autumnal Equinox, by the High Priest of Lady L. R.'s coven in Newburyport, Massachusetts. I neglected to write down his name, my apologies, for this has become a staple in our home and at Living History events. Thank You ! It is a dish traditional on the Harvest Festival, one of the six celebrated by the Mohawk tribe - Maple, Planting, Strawberry, Green Corn, Harvest and New Year's.
