Four Sally Lund Recipes from Housekeeping in the Blue Grass, 1874: I can just imagine the Ladies of the Presbyterian Church of Paris, Kentucky refusing to choose which Sally Lund recipes they should include in their cookbook. No one would say Miss Kate Spears’ recipe was better than Mrs. Kenney’s, nor would anyone say if Mrs. Chapline’s was better than Mrs. J. Payne’s. Just put all four recipes in the book!
Yes, we have the cookbook. See it here: https://www.vintagecookbook.com/product/housekeeping-blue-grass/
