    My husband and I emigrated to New Zealand over 40 years ago as newly weds, and this recipe was one of the few I brought with me. It still fills me with nostalgia when I make it, I always helped my mother to make it in early November. I make it as early as possible to let it mature. It's still written on the original paper. My 4 children and 8 grandchildren look forward to it every Christmas.
