The Best Loved 1945 Purity Cookbook

A very appealing early version of the Purity Flour Cookbook. The recipes are uncomplicated with accessible ingredients that make it great for classic cooking, with step by step photo instructions on how to make bread, cooking charts and even instructions on how to pluck, singe, dress, clean and truss poultry. This book is treasured for its favorite pie crust and tea biscuit recipes.

I'm still trying to get a copy of this gem, in good condition. It would mean a lot to me! So many memories tied to it, with my mom and grandma too.
