ELLINWOOD — Get together and talk about the special or everyday food dishes one used to make. Remember those recipes one wanted to ask mom about or grandmother. Perhaps it would be how to make an authentic German Chocolate Cake with the fudge frosting or a banana cream pie. It is time to spend some hours this summer in front of the air conditioner looking through the old cookbooks and recipe boxes.
The Ellinwood Community Historical Society has heard of interest in a cookbook containing the old German recipes of the Ellinwood area. It is also time to collect the recipes of the World War II, Depression and mid-century era before they disappear. They Society hopes to have a two section book of the different periods of time. Those who know how to make sausage, or bake cakes from scratch or how to fry chicken, bake bread or make a 24 hour fruit salad are all invited to send their recipes in along with the stories that might tell of when they were served, the origin, or any interesting things that might have happened when they were made.
Please send them to Joyce Schulte at Gifts of the Garden, 111 N. Main or Mary Jo Cunningham, Box 455, Ellinwood Kansas.
