I ate all the potted meat, tapioca pudding, bologna, & cream of wheat when I was growing up & will not eat any of today, except I did come around to eating fried bologna again...lol.

Ladies, all your creations are terrific! I am glad to changed the mail by date, Jean, because I may have yours finished by then....lol.

Look what I found in a thrift shop. Jean's phrase for this swap! $3 and hand stitched from an estate sale. I got another, too, for $5 - larger and about quilting.

I received my feed sack swap item from Marilyn and I LOVE IT! She made me a Junk Journal. I had heard of them but had never seen one up close and personal. The main cover is a pink and white feed sack with ruffled trims from the same and a different yellow and pink feed sack. Almost all of the pages have a fabric or lace trim of some kind; there are pages to write on or put pictures on. I love it. And i will love the hot chocolate and teas that were included. Thank you SO much, Marilyn.


My husband hid this little bunny from me when I was taking the pictures. Shame on him. Marilyn also made her for me with a cute feed sack dress, bows and little basket. Thank you so much, Marilyn.

Here is my beautiful feed sack apron that Heather made for me, so cute and I love it. Also the extras she made with the scraps. Just wonderful!
Thank you so much Heather, how happy I am to have you as my partner.
The post office said your package will be there tomorrow, Saturday.

I started The Persian Pickle Club book, it is really great. If anyone else wants to read it let me know. If no one wants to read it I will send it back to you Jean. Thank you for lending it to us.

Big Hugs,

I came across some recipes of my Grandmother's dating back to the Depression (or maybe before).

Vinegar Pie -( in my Grandma's words)
To make the filling put 1 ½ cups of water, ¾ cup of sugar, and ½ cup of vinegar into a saucepan and bring to a boil. Into this bring three heaping tablespoons full of cornstarch dissolved in a little water. As soon as it is clear pour into a baked pie crust. If the water and vinegar are boiling it will cook clear. It need no flavoring as the vinegar has a flavor all it's own.

I would imagine cider vinegar was used .

Hmmmm - they say to drink cider vinegar to lose weight. I wonder if this pie would work? LOL!

Rita, Linda and Debbie . . . . love all your Feed Sack loot. I know you do too. So glad y'all played in this swap. It has been such fun. I'm working on my projects . . . moving a bit slower these days. LOL.
Linda and Debbie, hope you like the book . . . I DID IT!!
Judith -- I have heard of Vinegar Pie. The ingredients sound weird, but it's actually reported to be quite good. May have to give that a try.

This was one of my favorites growing up. Grandma gave this recipe to Mom . No one in the family has the faintest idea who Aunt Chippie was so maybe this recipe came from an exchange sometime way back.

Aunt Chippie's Lemon Pie

Line a 9" pie pan with crust
Mix in a large bowl:
2 C sugar
1 T Flour
1 T cornmeal
4 eggs
¼ C melted butter
¼ C lemon juice
¼ C milk
4 T grated lemon rind
Beat until thoroughly blended and smooth. Pour into pie shell and bake at 375 for 35-45 minutes or until top is brown.

Oh Wow! That sounds similar to Chess Pie which I love, but even better. Will definitely be trying this one maybe even this weekend as I just finished squeezing a big bag of lemons yesterday and have a bottle of fresh lemon juice in the fridge and some grated rinds in the freezer left from making Limoncello -- Now that should give the pie a little kick. LOL.
Thanks Judith,
jean

I have an old cook book from my grandmother's garden or women's club. I'll have to see if there are any good recipes there.

Here is a picture of what I made and sent to Marilyn.
There is a Bowl warmer, a microwave bowl potholder, a cat tea cozy, and a crocheted over-the-oven-handle towel holder with an Easter fat quarter.

Judith, your grandmas vinegar pie filling sounds like the dressing I make for an apple and pecan salad each autumn. It is so yummy. It is a very old recipe from my hubby's grandmother. I give her credit for finishing my raising.
I loved her so much and she taught me so much. My young son knew just where she kept her two little books for children. Every time we visited her, several times each week, he would run as fast as his little legs would go, get the books, and run back to her. She would hold him in her lap and read "The Elves and the Shoemaker"(his favorite) to him. He loved his great granny! Sweet memories!

As for the Vinegar Pie,, never heard of it,, but I have been making Vinegar Chocolate cake since I first came across the recipe while at a cooking class, for Girl Scouts..1966-ish

6 TBLSP of margarine or butter
1 1/2C flour (not whole wheat , it changes the taste, trust me!)
1C sugar
3 TBLSP unsweeten cocoa (I used Hersheys un sweeten cocoa powder)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 TBLSP white vinegar
1 C cold water

(no eggs needed in this recipe)

Bake 30-35min at 350* 8x8" sq or round pan.. makes a one layer cake.
Sift dry ingredients together
add melted butter (warm butter to almost liquid)
add water and vanilla,, mix
then add vinegar.. it will sort of foam and change to a lighter color.

Bake and serve warm or cool...

I sometimes will add walnuts and/or chocolate chips to the mix.
I have also laid a doily over the cake while warm,, and sifted powdered sugar across the top then removed the doily.. it make a pretty lacy design.

I don't know how far back this recipe goes,, but I am betting around the War era, when house wives had to be pretty thrifty and frugal.
And Vinegar is as Frugal as you can get... baking, pickling, laundry, window cleaner, etc.

Little sister used to make a cake she learned either in Brownies or 4-H. She put the dry ingredients in the baking pan , made three holes, and put oil in one of the holes, vinegar in another, vanilla in the third. I recall it tasted pretty good. She also had an old recipe for making grape ice cream with a package of grape kool aid, 2/3 C sugar, and a can of evaporated milk. I had a craving for that ice cream when I was pregnant. Ate a lot of it. I'm sure it would be good with other flavors too but the only flavor we ever made was grape.
