Sesqui Cookbooks - Reminder

This is just a reminder - if you want to order a Sesqui Cookbook you should probably do it soon. We are going to reorder (just once) but of the original 1200 we have less than 400 left. This book is filled with over 800 family-tested recipes and I'm sure you'll be pleased with what you find inside.

To give you an example of the type of recipes you'll find under Old Time Favorites, here is a recipe for boiled ice cream submitted by Virginia Zimmerman:

Boiled Ice Cream

3/4 to 1 qt. cream
2 cups sugar
3 eggs, separated and beaten
2 tablespoons flour
1 1/2 qt. whole milk
2 tablespoons vanilla

1 1/2 GALLONS:
1 qt. cream
3 cups sugar
5 eggs, separated & beaten
3 tablespoons flour (more, if needed)
2 1/2 qt. whole milk
3 tablespoons vanilla

Ice & salt to freeze the mixture in the freezer

Heat the milk. Mix flour and sugar together; add to milk and boil slowly for 20 minutes. Take from heat; stir in beaten egg yolks and cool. Add cream and beaten egg whites and vanilla. Pour into freezer container; add more milk if needed, to fill container 3 to 4 inches from the top. Freeze with crank freezer. When firm, remove dasher and let set in can in freezer, packed with ice and salt.
NOTE: Mixture scorches easily, cook slowly.
"My mother...made this in winter when ice had frozen over in a tank. Dad would break the ice up and we other children turned the hand crank freezer. This ice cream should be eaten slowly or a severe headache will develop."

I love some of the recipe names: Strawberry Stirrum, Bake Day Spice Cake, Grandma Twait's Lefsa (that almost sounds dirty!).

So, if you want to order (they're $12.00 each plus $5.95 s/h) you can either let me know or go to West Bend's website - there's an order form there. I know you cookbook lovers won't be disappointed!
