Mentha-col Cook Book: Successful Cooking Recipes for Simple Dishes in Use by Southern Housewives. Ten-page booklet (printed on only one side of the page) with advertising for Mentha-Col and with imple, rather homespun recipes. Published in 1921. Includes Includes recipes like Jack Rabbit Sausage, ‘Possum with Dressing. Raisin Pie, Sweet Potato Pie, and Squirrel Stew. Booklet is in excellent vintage condition, with the exception of folds where someone, probably a well-meaning husband, folded it to put it into his breast pocket. Has many recipes plus many advertisements for Mentha-col (I think, a product like Vicks for colds.) Plus “testimonials” from product users about the effectiveness of Mentha-col.
This is a rare, very difficult to find booklet for a decent price.
