For the love of food

Turkey sandwich with homemade squash pickles.

I love old cookbooks. Especially old cookbooks with canning and preserving recipes.

This one I dug out of the donation pile when I worked at the library.

The squash makes a nice pickle and is a good substitute for cucumbers for any pickle type recipes.  We had a bumper crop of summer squash this year and I was really ready to try some new canning recipes.  I had also failed to plant cucumber this year.  So you learn to use what is on hand.
