"Watkins Cook Book". Copyright 1936 by The J.R. Watkins Company. Known today for it's natural products, The Watkins Company was known by the 1930's for it's extracts, spices, and toiletries. In addition to the yummy old-fashioned recipes, his book includes several full page color illustrations of Watkins products. There is are two special chapters on economy recipes. And a bonus: The original owner tucked dozens of old recipes - some handwritten, some typed, some clippings - into this book. I think it's fitting to keep these long-kept recipes with the book, so I'm including them here. The cookbook's original owner not only filled up the blank pages at the back of the book with recipes, but wrote recipes in every blank space she could find, including the title page.

The book was extremely well-loved, as is evident by it's condition. It has lots of staining, a few pages have tears, there are creases on the front and back cover, and the wire coil binding is a bit misshapen. I'm hoping that a true collector will treasure it though, as it was treasured by it's original owner. The book measures 6" x 8 1/8" and has 200 pages.

Recipes include:

FUDGE CAKE, BREAD & BUTTER PICKLES, KEY LIME PIE, CHOCOLATE PINWHEELS, MANGO PRESERVES, COCONUT PIE, DOUGHNUTS WITH SWEET MILK, ENGLISH TEA MUFFINS, OYSTER STEW, PEA SOUP, FISH SOUFFLE, SALMON LOAF, CHESTNUT STUFFING, CHILI MOI, CHOP SUEY, SWEETBREAD CUTLETS, ASPARAGUS AND EGGS AU GRATIN, ORANGE BANANA APPLE FRITTERS, MACARONI LOAF, STUFFED EGG PLANT, SWEET POTATO CROQUETTES, CREAM SAUCE FOR VEGETABLES, FROZEN FRUIT SALAD, HOT SLAW, CHERRY SALAD, CHIFFONADE SALAD DRESSING, CHOCOLATE BREAD PUDDING, BUTTERSCOTCH SAUCE, NUT TORTE, RICE PUDDING, STRAWBERRY BAVARIAN, STRAWBERRY TARTS, BLACKBERRY OR RASPBERRY JAM CAKE, WATKINS CREAM CAKE, LAYER SPICE CAKE, LIGHT SPONGE CAKE, WATKINS BOILED CHOCOLATE FROSTING, CHOCOLATE COCONUT PIE, WATKINS ORANGE FLUFF TARTS, FIG ICE CREAM, FRENCH CHOCOLATE ICE CREAM, MAPLE PARFAIT, HOT LOBSTER SANDWICHES, CAKE SANDWICHES, TOASTED SARDINE SANDWICHES, BROWN SUGAR COOKIES, CHRISTMAS COOKIES, CREAM PUFFS, HERMITS, WATKINS WALNUTS TEA SQUARES, CUCUMBER RELISH, APPLE CHILI SAUCE, PEAR MARMALADE, PICCALILLI MEAT RELISH, WATKINS EGGNOG DRINK, FAMOUS CHICKEN CURRY, FAMOUS CHICKEN CURRY, CORNED BEEF AND CABBAGE, BEEF HASH, BARLEY SOUP, HAM CASSEROLE, SCOTCH EGGS, MEXICAN LUNCHEON DISH, CARAMEL PUDDING, PINEAPPLE COCONUT PUDDING, BERRY CAKE, WATKINS FONDANT LOAF, COCONUT MAPLE FUDGE, and many more.
