These two old books work well together. The first is an old booklet called How to Freeze Foods which covers a wide range. The front and back covers are very colorful with a handful of color photos inside the forty some page booklet. It gives simple, easy to follow instructions and tips for freezing a variety of fruits, vegetables, meats, poultry, fish baked goods and leftovers. It also includes hints on thawing. It was written under direction of Professor James D. Winter from the University Farm in St. Paul, Minnesota. I find no date but would assume it is from the 1940's by the clothing and hairstyles inside. It measures about 6" by 9" and is in very nice condition with minimal wear to the edges and corners.
The second is a hardbound book called The Color Book of Freezer Cookery by Mary Berry. In the 90 plus pages you’ll find all you need to know about freezing fresh foods plus a there are recipes to prepare and freeze with instructions on thawing and serving. The recipes include appetizers, main courses and desserts including birthday cake. It has a 1977 copyright by Octopus Books, Ltd. and measures about 7 9/16” by 10 5/8”. It has its paper dust jacket which has some soiling and wear but it has kept the cover of the book very clean. The inside pages are crisp with a tight spine.
Priced and sold as the pair.
