Seriously? They still DO that? We haven't had bags out here since the 70s. Tell ON to smarten up already. Blech. Or come visit AB where the milk is sweet. Just like the people.

We still have some local dairies that sell their milk in glass bottles.

I get milk in cardboard cartons, and I live in Canada. They sell bags of it too, but I prefer the cartons (easier to handle).

Here too Addie. I think poor CWS is getting the short end of the stick.

Sorry for the hijack! Back to gingerbread! Did you take pix?

We only have one dairy left that sells milk in glass bottles. I think the bottle deposit is up to 75 cents so it pays to remember to take back the old bottle. I think milk stored in glass tastes better and lasts longer.

Wasn't quite a hijack. What goes better with a nice piece of warm gingerbread than a tall glass of cold milk. At least that is what my mother always served it to me with.

We have to talk about something while we are waiting for the results of the next experiment!

I love dairy sold in glass bottles. It has a better flavor imho. When I go upstate I make a point of stopping at a farm stand that sells heavy cream, 1/2 & 1/2 and chocolate milk in glass bottles. YUM!!

It is wonderful. They sell the heavy cream, 1/2 & 1/2 and chocolate milk in pint and quart sizes.

recipe

ISO Dark, Moist Gingerbread recipe The DH's grandma made the most amazing gingerbread. It was dark, moist, in a 9x13 pan. She gave me the recipe, but I lost it. Because of the disfunctionality in that family, no one has the recipe--she took it to her grave? I hope not. I know there was molasses in it, ginger (obviously) and that is all I can remember. It was very moist and very dark. She lived in Nova Scotia. I only made it once. My bad. Does anyone have a gingerbread recipe that might be like this? Although I'm still mad as a wet hen at the DH because his dog killed my two hens, I'd love to surprise him with this on Thanksgiving (Alix-LP-Rock--do you have recipe for this???). 3 stars 1 reviews
