Food for the soul

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

READ­ING Ja­son Good­win (Novem­ber 21, 2018) talk­ing about how house­wives used to keep note­books full of recipes gleaned from oth­ers brought a smile to my face. I have a bat­tered book given to my mother by her fa­ther for Christ­mas in 1946, for her to as­sem­ble recipes in a neat A-Z or­der. I have my favourites, which I use of­ten, but de­cided to have a look through to see what I might have missed and found sev­eral recipes in my grand­mother’s hand and one, for mint jelly, in my grand­fa­ther’s. This book will re­main one of my trea­sured pos­ses­sions, a link with so many fam­ily mem­bers, gone but not for­got­ten. Louise Eden, Hert­ford­shire
