Vintage Kitchen Tools, Dishes, and Cookbooks

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware and on the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site. Click here to view Vintage Kitchenware on Etsy.

You can always find treasures on sites that sell used items such as Vintage Cookbooks on eBay and Vintage Cookbooks on Etsy

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.

I have a similar recipe from a Lady who was born & raised in Vienna, Austria before the turn of the 1900s. A little different since she claimed not to be a Cook. The instructions lack exact info. Like what size pan, time, and no measurements on the nut & fruit amounts. Rather than "grease&flour" pans she lined them with foil, pretty smart, I thought. I will try this recipe and compare it. Also no "Baking Powder". Her family also had a Cook, so learning wasn't important back then. She also used Manichino Cherries, no Dates, which I like better.

My recipe calls for the dates to be covered with boiling water then allow to cool. Other wise it’s the same. It makes them softer in the bread. I live in Arizona so dates are plentiful here. It’s been in my family since the forties and we make it every year. Right now I am eating some my daughter made for Christmas. We make it every year and keep the recipe handed down generation to generation.

Just came across this recipe in my Grandmother’s old recipe box. It is identical to yours, she did write 1 cup halved glazed cherries though. Your recipes look a lot like the ones I’m going through right now. What a great way to spend a cold overcast morning.
