Title

Gathered Crumbs: A Peoria Cook Book- 1894 Edition

Description

This is the 1894 printing of Mrs. Jennie Cunningham McClure's "Gathered Crumbs: A Peoria Cookbook"

In Mrs. Jennie Cunningham McClure's own words:

"Gathered Crumbs, as the name suggests, is compiled from recipes gleaned here and there from the successes of the skilled and experienced. Over two hundred ladies have contributed the choicest material found in the culinary art, and the names appended to the recipes are a guarantee of their excellence. These lay no claim to originality, but are choice bits of cookery, thoroughly tested and found to be excellent, as well as economical. Any one using them will be rewarded with dishes palatable, and such as will tempt the appetites of the household. The book is carefully indexed, so as to give easiest possible reference; and is provided with blank pages between the principal departments, for the use of those who have additional recipes to record. It is elegantly and substantially bound in oil-cloth, and will stand unlimited service. The favor with which the first edition was received has seemed to justify the issuing of a new and revised number, which, we trust, will commend itself to the needs of any household where good food, well prepared, is desirable."
