Ben Weller, my son-in-law, makes this wonderful family recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. He uses the
traditional method of grinding with an old hand-crank grinder. His mother, Joan Weller, told me (in confidence) that you don't really need to use a food grinder
(you can use a food processor). It was her way of keeping her son busy and out of the way when she was fixing the holiday dinner.
