1917 Ole Timey Corn Recipe
“The Book Of Corn Cookery” is a wonderful reprint the original edition printed in 1917 by Mary L. Wade. This small book on 150 ways to cook with corn or corn products was originally designed to help American families supplement their diets, inexpensively during the first World War.
From the first edition, Mrs. Wade writes, “Our government has appealed to everyone in the land to help win the war — to shorten the war — by conserving all foods. For food in modern wars, in their abundance or lack, turn the tide of work quite as much as ammunition.”
“No true hearted woman can resist such an appeal if she but realizes that her act may be a part in saving her son or some other mother’s son.”
While things are not rationed due to the war effort, many Americans are dealing with restricted budgets. And Mrs. Wade’s little corn book is just as useful now as it was then.
This book would make a great gift to anyone in need or as part of a donation to a favorite charity or non-profit.
