This is a vintage recipe that goes back before ice cream, was use on pound cakes. My Great-Great Grandmother made this for my Great Grandmother Biggs when she was a little girl, and so on down the line. I don't know for sure how far back in our family this recipe goes. But it is great on meats, ice cream & pound cakes!
