IM CROWS

(Port Saunders , Newfoundland, Canada)

My grandmother , Ellen Buchanan,was from Ayr, came to Newfoundland as a First World War bride. She is long since gone but my mother, her daughter has a query. She is looking for a recipe called "JIM CROWS" apparently it is a square with currents?? she remembers grammy giving it to her "by word of mouth " but hasn't made it for years. Can you help us ? I would love to send the recipe to her.

Thank You

Hi Alma
I've certainly never heard of this. But I've moved this contribution to the Recipe contribution Page. But it sounds a bit like the 'Fly Cemetry' recipe (one of the readers shared this recipe. But hopefully someone else will enlighten us with the JIM CROWS recipe, and share it here on the site.
