GREAT GRUBB! A Collection of Recipes Shared by Our Family Members. by Chris Watson

A review of our Family Cookbook.  by Chris Watson

Great Grubb!
A Collection of Recipes Shared by Our Family Members!

Recipes shared by the Acord, Allison, Brooks, Brown, Buyalos, Coppler, Evans, Fraizer, Grubb, Pizzino, Stafford, Turner, Watson, and Walker Families.

The Cookbook contains 8 Divisions, 146 recipes, and 6 articles of household hints.

     Compiled and self-published for our Reunion, September, 2006.

     Our family cookbook was compiled to save for future generations some of our best family recipes.  The book also allowed us to include personal memories, such as my own story about Grandma's Homemade Apple Butter.

     A family cookbook is also a very personal one, with everyone contributing to it's contents.  And what can be better than seeing your recipe and name in print!

     Our family cookbook was completely self-published:  the pages were done on a copy machine and home computer!  But it was great fun and completely ours!  

One of our recipes from our Book:

shared by Aunt Beulah Pizzino

1 cup sliced cucumbers
1 cup chopped green peppers
1 cup cabbage
1 cup onions
1 cup carrots sliced
1 cup green tomatoes
1 cup green beans

1. Combine all the above vegetables and soak in salt water solution overnight (1 1/2 cup salt and 2 quarts water).

2. Drain salt water solution from vegetables.

3. Cook carrots and beans until tender.  Add remaining vegetables and following spices and cover with water and cook 10 minutes.

2 teas mustard seed
1 teas celery seed
1 tablespoon chopped celery
2 cup of vinegar
2 cup sugar
2 tablespoon of tumeric

Pack in jars and seals.
