Some Edith recipes seemed like good ideas at the time but, upon later testing, or changing standards in what was considered an acceptable ingredient or cooking practice, the ominous red line would appear, striking it from further use.

We’re not sure whether it’s the alum in the recipe, the diabetes-inducing amounts of sugar, or the need to keep cooking, cooling and recooking the same food over and over again on this particular recipe, but some time around the 1960′s, the 12-Day Pickle recipe was quietly removed from the rotation.

    I have made a recipe similar to this that has been in my husbands family since they came from Sweden in the 1800′s, I still use it to this day, but wish I had the original printed recipe.
