Food Fashions of the Hour


Food Fashions of the Hour
Kerr Glass Manufacturing Corporation
....I was puzzled, at first, as to why a glass manufacturer would print a cookbook. But as I read the introduction, I realized that Kerr Mfg. made the Mason fruit and canning jars I used to see on my grandmother's shelf! The recipes sound delicious, the pictures are charming, and the page headers tell the rest of the story:
Economical menus easily planned from products canned in Kerr jars
Harmony in food and color from Kerr canned products
Kerr canned products mean delicious food concoctions
Kerr menus mean contented homes
Satisfying meals—easily prepared—spell happy housewives
Kerr home-canned products assure health
And, at the back of the book there is even a table showing the relative amounts of Vitamins A, B, C, D, E, and F in over 100 foods, such as apples, dandelion greens, watercress, and yellow corn. Copyright 1934; 32 pages, softcover.

Condition: Good, but cover is starting to come loose and the stapled edge was taped at some point in the past.

Price: $5.00 plus $2.00 shipping.
