yeah, its a neat little book. all in all, it has about 70 recipes in it. also in there are recipes for custard pie, jams and jellies, sugar cookies, cracklin' bread, chicken fricasse', dandelion salad, and others. grams lives down in crystal city, mo., which some of you might know is due south on i-55 from st. louis. she loves to go out and hit the garage and estate sales. gives her something to do.
the only thing i think that would have made this little book better was if there were some dates or time periods for the recipes. obviously there are several recipes from early settler times. i am kind of a history buff and love it when it is possible to place stuff like this into an era of westward expansion.
edit: love the last line of the soap recipe, "make in cool weather in full moon in zodiac sign in the legs." anyone know when that might be? been lookin into soap making and would like to get it right.
