I have mentioned this fabulous series of cookbooks before. We grew up with the older ones in our house. Some of Mother's favorite recipes were contained in these volumes. My parents had a subscription to Farm Journal magazine, and I'm sure that is where she first learned of their cookbooks. They also belonged to the Farm Bureau, and I have fond memories of the potluck meetings we attended and yummy food! When I grew up, I set out to amass my own collection of the cookbooks. This was their first in 1959:
The Freezing and Canning Cookbook, 1963:
Farm Journal's Complete Pie Cookbook, 1965:
Let's Start To Cook, 1966 - we sisters cooked a lot out of this book!
Cooking For Company, 1968:
Homemade Candy, 1970:
And Homemade Cookies, 1971:
That is just a few of them. They continued to publish more books through the years; my collection now numbers at least twenty!
Like I said before - those farm ladies really knew how to cook!
