Old fashioned recipes you can use today is the theme of a cookbook that has been put together by the DeWitt County Museum.
Friday morning on the WHOW Morning Show, Director Joey Woolridge told Regional Radio News they collected the best recipes from about 15 cookbooks in their collection to publish for the public.
For the most part, Woolridge points out the recipes appear as they did in the books they were taken from. However, some aspects needed adjusting because some of these were put together before the time of the digital oven thermometer and even for fire stoves.
Woolridge believes the recipes are wholesome because they were put together before the era of processed foods. The books are $5 and are available now in the museum gift shop.
