Default Treasure Found!

Today I struck gold.

Going through some old canning books, I found Mom's recipe for bread and
butter pickles.

Written in her own hand.

It's the recipe that has won nine blue ribbons (and six of other colors)
for me at the Minnesota State Fair. Handwritten! I can tell that she
copied it from something - the spelling and punctuation were correct.
(Usually when she wrote, the first word began with a capital letter and
the document ended with a period. In between, you were on your own.)

It's always great to find an heirloom recipe. My mother and yours must
have had a connection, Mom's spelling was, at best, a wild guess and she
didn't know what punctuation was.

What's the language, looks Finnish?

George, resting up from a strenuous trip to the supermarket. Oy vey! the
prices nowadays.

I had a recipe treasure find a few years ago. My favorite cookies are
salted peanut cookies, a treat from my childhood. I have the recipe
as written down by my mom (and I've tweaked it a bit), but to my joy I
found inside mom's old recipe box the original recipe clipped from the
Pioneer Press newspaper column. I discovered the original recipe
included cornflakes, which mom never bothered with.

That's pretty cool. I should write out some of my favorite recipes by
hand for my daughter to find someday. (a computer printout just isn't
the same)

Or the only one who has remarked about it. :-)
