Notes

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!

Love the recipe and the story of the turtles, that had to be a sight to behold. I never thought of keeping turtles outside, I couldn't do that where I live, much too cold.
