Coffee Gel

Add one envelope unflavored gelatin to 1/4 cup cold coffee and let
stand 5 minutes.  Stir into 2 cups scalding hot coffee.  Add 1/2 cups
sugar and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.  Cool.  Refrigerate about 4 hours or
until firm.  To serve, spoon into deep sherbet cups.  Pour over each
serving one tablespoon sweet cream or whipped cream.

"P.S. I substitute Irish Whiskey for the vanilla (sometimes).  Just any
measurement will do.", she wrote in a notation at the bottom of the
The Burrows

1 1/2 block butter
2 or 3 medium onions
1/2 bell pepper
2 or 3 ribs of celery
1 can Rotel tomatoes
Sauté above ingredients about 4 hours. Do no Add any water
Add 1/2 lemon
dash Worcestershire  sauce
Parsley and 2 buttons squeezed garlic
Add: 1/2 to 2/3 cans mushrooms soup
Lastly add 1 quart and 1 pint - cleaned - shrimp or crawfish.

This was all she wrote on the recipe card.  This comes from the
journal I purchased and was shipped to me from Georgia.  But I have
notices, many of the newspaper clippings were from a Houston,
Texas newspaper, called the Houston Chronicle - this paper was
dated Thursday, August 17th, 1972.  Some earlier clippings were
dated 1968.  I also wanted to note some grocery prices back then. I
do not know what newspaper or date they come from.

I found several interesting cards in this lady's recipe box.  The easiest
to read was dated March 14, 1954 and titled, "Jons Confirmation".  
Following this was written in black ink the menu of the day.  I don't
know why this fascinates me, but it does.  The one thing it does for
sure is date her recipes to the 1950's.   She had other of these cards
marked July 10, 1954, September 20th, 1954, 10/24/60 with the
name Bertie Field written there, and apparently she played bridge with
Connie Murray, among others, but I can't make out all their names
and I couldn't make out all of the words on any of the other cards.
She must kept track of what was served at many functions.  Starting
in the 50's, up until 1972, when she stopped.

The one I've taken the time to transcribe here was the only one
printed, not in script, so it was easy.
If her recipe box is any indication, she had a wonderful life, full of
parties, friends, and family.

I just love going through other people's stuff.  Their lives, their
history, and me having nose problems helps.  I use to go through
my sister's stuff when we were kids.  I don't know why, but she use
to just hate it.  She would tattle to mom and boy, was I in trouble!
How to Preserve Eggs
Dated 1921
Now that eggs are dearer as a rule than they have been for years, many people are inquiring
about the methods of preserving them.  The old way was to pack them in salt or lime.  This
served the purpose, but it gave the eggs a very strong taste.

The approved method now is the one which calls for the use of "water glass," or silicate of soda.  
This is a thick, syrupy liquid which can be had at most drug stores for about 10 cents a pound,
and a pound is enough to treat five dozen eggs, so that the cost of preserving is about two cents
a dozen.

There are several grades of water glass, and it is wise to get the best.  To prepare the solution,
stir one part of the silicate of soda into sixteen parts of water which has been boiled, cooled and
carefully measured.

It is essential to have the eggs fresh, or the experiment will not be a great success.  Those over
three days old should not be used, as the air has already had a chance to penetrate them.  The
very best way is to keep the solution made up ready and put the eggs into it just as soon as they
are brought in from the nest, if you have your own chickens.  It is worse then useless to try to
preserve eggs that are not fresh or that have been cracked or washed.
Cold Cut Pie
She write, "Make it ahead of time and be the coolest cook in town.  
An you need to complete the menu is a tossed salad or some sliced
tomatoes, a basket of bread or rolls, a pitcher of ice tea and dill

Prepare the filling:
1 pound potatoes (about 3 medium)
1/3 cup vinegar
1 tablespoon prepared mustard
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/2 cup diced green pepper
1/4 cup minced onion
1/4 cup pickle relish
3 hard cooked eggs, diced
1/2 pound boiled ham or 1 can (12 oz.) luncheon meat, diced
1/2 pound salami, diced.
Cook the potatoes in boiling salted water until barely tender - still firm
in the center
Meanwhile, combine remaining ingredients.  Then potatoes are ready,
peel, dice; add to filling mixture. Chill for 2 hours.

Fix the dressing and crust:
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1/2 cup water
1 pound sliced bologna
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup commercial sour cream

Place gelatin and water in small sauce pan and let stand two minutes,
then heat to the boiling point, stirring until gelatin is dissolved.  
Remove from heat.  While it cools a bit, line a ten inch pie plate with
bologna, overlapping the slices. Now, using rotary beater, combine
the gelatin mixture, mayonnaise, and sour cream.   Chill till gelatin is
just slightly thickened - about 20 minutes.  Fold in filling mixture;
spoon into bologna "crust".  Chill at least 3 hours.  (Store in
refrigerator up to two days if you wish.)  Serves six as a main dish.
