My Great Grandmother’s Recipes
My mother recently gave me my great grandmother’s recipe box. I have been having lots of fun looking through it. There are quite a few recipes I want to try, including her butterscotch pie. I am equally confused and enthralled with the fact that there are no directions, just a short list of ingredients. How on earth do I begin to make this? I’m not sure whether it was just a recipe that she knew so well there was no need to write down how to make it, or if in her generation it was just silly to assume that someone wouldn’t know how to make this pie. Either way, one of these days I’m going to try it. These are the kinds of things that I am excited to pass down to my children, memories and traditions of the women before me. Thanks mom!
