This is a dessert my brother and sister and I enjoyed as kids when my parents took us to Bea''s Dude Ranch in the Adirondack Mountains east of Lake George, NY. Bea Owens passed it along to our family when she retired. Despite the unusual-sounding ingredients it makes an unforgettable dessert. Skip this if you care about calories!
