Gayle writes:  Hazel (also known as Mardu, Steve's great grandmother) said that she didn't always use a whole cup of cream, sometimes only 3/4 cup. It will last in the refrigerator up to a week, but can be frozen and partially thawed before serving. Either way is delicious.  Sometimes, when I have served this, I have used leaf lettuce underneath, and even large spinach leaves for color.
