This delightful little book is a must if you like really old-fashioned recipes and advice. Signed and dated Feb. 25, 1931 on the inside front cover by my mother (Leota Cadot) when she was 15 years old. Chapter 1 covers important things: “Suggestions for Personal Neatness in the School Kitchen and at Home.” I particularly like the chapter on eggs where it advises “eggs can be preserved packed in dry sawdust or sand, put into jars with salt brine, coated with paraffin or lard and put into cold storage.” There’s even a chapter on caring for the sick with a recipe for albumenized milk (egg white, milk, little salt and sugar) and for Oatmeal Gruel. Doesn’t that sound appetizing? 83-pages of how it used to be. Measures 6 x 9.
