This cookbook has become a favorite with home cooks across Canada who want delicious, convenient and economical dishes that will enhance family meals. Originally published in 1978 by the Altona Women's Institute in Manitoba, it has now been in print for 25 years! Many of the 200 recipes in this collection were handed down from mother to daughter and shared in the close-knit Mennonite community, where food has always been a central feature of any gathering. This book has all the elements of great home cooking -- soups, salads, main dishes, desserts, cakes, cookies, jams and pickles. Some favorite Mennonite dishes include Cabbage Rolls, Zwieback, Christmas Almond Cookies, and Mustard Pickles. These tried-and-tested favourites are sure to please.
