  2. This is fantastic! I help my mom with many of these. Some I still use but process in the pressure canner.

  3. Looks like L’s cookbook.

    I’ve noticed that every year the guidelines and recommendations from the extension system change. I have some of the canning books published by the extension system from the 1930’s but even the books published in the 1990’s are considered ‘unsafe’ now. Makes me wonder why we don’t have mass graves marked with “Killed by home canning”. I’ve been using those old recipes for 2 and a half decades and nobody has been sick from it even once. Maybe it’s because I pray over the food as I process it.

      Gee, you’d almost think people should be afraid of canning their own food or something?
      Whatever happened to cutting and salting cabbage for sauerkraut in crocks or cucumbers, garlic and dillweed covered in brine to make dill pickles… No sugar, no food colouring, no processing other than lactic acid fermentation and a grape leaf here and there. Kinda like making nine day pickle, beer, wine (or vinegar; ) yogourt, kefir, kimchee, soy sauce…
      Well, I don’t know about you, but I think FarmGal’s on to something here by sharing family history with us all. Pickling is bone-deep in my family and every culture in the world has its fermented dishes, right? So, who’ve I left out?

  5. Love them 🙂 the writing also looks like my mothers, I asked her once how she learned to write so neat. She said that the teacher would correct her writing by slapping her hands with a ruler, Ouch!

    I think this is really cool. I still have a few recipe cards that are written in my grandmother’s handwriting, too. THey’re special because they remind me of her 🙂 Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather 🙂

    Loving’ the Cold Pack Rhubarb idea – it never seems the same after being frozen): Betcha the Haymaker’s Beer would be a whole lot cheaper, tastier and better for ya; ) than Gatorade. SO many great recipes here! Thanks for sharing. ox D.
