My wife showed me this web sight and immediately fell in love with it, I have been given a boatload of recipe books that date back at least 50 years, some back to the 30's, I have already scanned most of the handwritten recipes into image files and am wanting to share them with all who are interested, i don't have a catalog of them but if anyone is looking for an old recipe, please post your request or e-mail me. I am trying to figure out if I'm going to need a web sight dedicated to this endeavor, or if an as needed bases is better.

If anyone knows of a sight that already does this, please let me know and i will forward the material to them.

Thanks

I hope this helps

From the Balanced Recipe book copyright 1933 for cornbread
oven 375
1C flour
1C corn meal
1-2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
2 eggs
1 C milk
3 tbsp melted shortening


Sift flour, sugar, salt and baking powder together.
stir in cornmeal and mix.
combine well beaten eggs, milk and shortening;add to dry ingredients.
mix well and pour into greased pan a bake.

Variations:
1 sour milk: when substituting sour milk for sweet milk sift 1/3 tsp soda with dry ingredients
2 bacon cornbread: omit shortening from either sour or sweet milk recipe, pour batter into shallow, greased baking pan and sprinkle 1/2 pound finely diced uncooked bacon on top. bake like regular corn bread. if bacon is not crisp when cornbread is done, put under broiler for about 5 minutes


this is the most unique on i found, i hope it helps, remember; the age this is from, when it's done it's done and it takes as long as it takes, I myself bake more by nose than timer. be diligent

Hey,

Thank you sir!

I collect old cookbooks, mostly Amurican ones (it's easiest for me to find) and scour for the cornbread & fried chicken recipes first. Always fun to see how procedures & ingredients vary.
