Historic recipes that make you laugh
I was going through my grandma's recipes today. I found an interesting one for an icebox dessert that called for a 1 "10 cent can of pineapple". Even my mom didn't know how much pineapple it was calling for. Thank goodness for the internet (fyi, it's about 1 cup). The phrase dates the recipe from about the 1950s.
Have you run across any uniquely worded or interesting recipes like this?
