I have in my possession one of the coolest old cookbooks around. I say it's in my possession because it used to be my mom's highschool home economics cookbook. But my mom thinks popcorn is supper so she doesn't really use it much.
I was checking out the publisher's page and noticed that it was first printed in 1923. Seriously cool.
And it has some fabulous old recipes in it. Like the one for sourdough bread that requires the pot to be hung from the rafters above the woodstove. Tee hee.
It does have a lot of very useful recipes in it, too. Like this one for baked beans that we tried recently.
Notice the line that says to cook for 6 hours. Yup, that's what is called slooooow food.
They were mighty fine beans, though. We will definitely be making them again.
I love trying out new recipes, or even very old ones. Because we're working at eliminating all the chemical preservatives from our diet, I'm always looking for yummy things to make from scratch.
Do you have any favourite recipes you'd like to share?
Happy cooking, M
