Overview

Subtitled "a treasury of century-old family recipes, with a selection of natural foods and wild game cookery, and with sections on preserving foods and on household hints,” this complete everyday cookbook covers all phases of food preparation from butchering to preserving. It includes over 300 recipes which exemplify the tradition of cook­ing plain—cooking "from scratch,” with no food substitutes or ready-mixes of any kind—the art of good family cooking enjoyed by generations of Americans in earlier times. These reci­pes will be used and treasured by to­day’s cooks as they were by families of an earlier generation. For the historical­ly minded, Mrs. Linsenmeyer laces her book with information on life-styles and cooking before 1900 and gives helpful instructions on mixing and pre­paring foods and on the use of cooking utensils.
