My neighbor, Harry Donahue, is the sweetest guy you would ever want to meet, an old sargent, lives by himself, BUT, he does NOT want people to know that he is a nice guy. Got the Picture? Ha. We share food back and forth, and he brought this to me and I was a little sceptical about it, BUT, it is GREAT, he had gotten the original recipe from another neighbor and friend, Midge Dacus, and he modified it to suit himself, and it is GREAT. Use it as a side dish or a relish.
