I'm a descendant of Samuel's brother (I believe) and am looking forward to trying this recipe out. This is the first "Family" recipe I've heard of from the Sewalls. Thanks so much for posting it!

Thanks Brady! Great to see another cousin! Keep an eye out! There are many more family recipes to come! If you search my blog for Sewall, you will find others. The Juneau Fish Chowder is another neat one... where the Houghton's married into the Sewall family. Thanks for your comment!
