Format: Paperback
I recently bought two of these cookbooks--one as a gift and the other for myself. I remember my mother's Purity Cookbook from when I was a child--it was a red hardcover one which she gave to me when I married. It eventually was in tatters and I typed out a couple of my favourites before discarding it (how I wish that I had kept it, tattered and all). Then one day some five years or so later there was another Purity Cookbook for sale in our local IGA which, of course, I bought. It is my favourite and is getting rather grease spotted and flour coated now.
I went online a few years ago to see if I could get another but found that the Purity Flour Company had gone out of business and did not publish another. But then, I was able to get this reissue from Amazon and I love it. I have several cookbooks but it is the first that I look for. I have always liked the format of the recipes in that the ingredients are listed as they are used rather than ingredients separate from directions. Sure, the some of the recipes aren't the same but I love it anyway.
As an aside, my grandmother passed a few years ago and my dad found amongst her possessions three other Purity Cookbooks--two which were obviously my great-grandmother's--one published in 1917! In the back are coupons to send away for other copies--just send $0.20 (as compared to the $1.00 for it in the 1967 copy). Certainly a cookbook for all Canadians through the years--nearly one hundred!
I hope that these cookbooks continue to be published--they are neat and compact in their delivery of some real down-to-earth cooking.

I already had one of the old old Purity Cook Books and really just wanted to see if there was much change. It was very interesting to read and I may try some of the new recipes

I have used versions of the cookbook for more years than I wish to count, this is the best version I have been able to buy as it has returned to an earlier format and included recipes that had been left out of the version I bought in the 1970's.

This cookbook was used in my high school 'Home Economics' classes in the 1960's and the recipes are just as good as they were back then! I had used the Purity cookbook so much over the years that the pages were stained and torn from overuse. I was so happy to discover that a new edition was available after all these years. This cookbook offers a wide variety of meals, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, preserves, and even cooking for a crowd. There are basic tips on how to bake bread, pickling, freezing, and so on. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who is new to cooking as well as to people who have been cooking all their lives. And for us old timers, it also brings a little nostalgia into the kitchen.

Ideal for beginners, a bible for every day cooks. Gives advice and instruction on how to do it. We still use recipes from when we originally bought it.

This was my Mother's go to cookbook when I was growing up. It is wonderful to be able to recreate many of the treats and tastes that bring back such fond memories.

My grandmother had this cookbook and I received it 20 years ago. I have tried many recipes and always had great results. Recently I purchased 4 new books....3 for my friends and a new one for myself because mine was literary falling apart from overuse. The girls love it also. A fantastic cookbook for simple homecooking. I would recommend it to everyone. I was very happy to see it on amazon.

Very popular cook book from a bygone era of the 1960s that I grew up seeing my mom use regularly.
