Neat stuff. Ya they have info that you'd never think of using now. I like the canning and preserving cookbooks that are older too. We just got a cookbook with recipes from all the different pioneers that came to Canada. It's not all that old but the recipes are. My Mom was looking for a German recipe for a type of dumpling that she had as a kid. One of her neighbours gave it to her Mom but she said it never turned out quite as good. Seemed that a fave trick was to leave out an ingredient so it wasn't as good as the original. This book had the recipe so she was happy to finally have the complete recipe.
