My uncle grew up in Mohave, California.
This recipe was given to my uncle by a long-time friend of the family who lived in Mohave, Mrs. T. Mrs. T kept desert turtles in her front yard the fence was designed so that they couldn't get out.
She had a big yard that they roamed in, and she fed them so they were safe and cared for.
Those turtles were so beautiful!
