Yeah!! Whatever Tattrat, your opinion, not mine, your entitled to have one I s'pose. I know what Im doing, you dont, each to their own and Im not forcing anyone, Am I!!!. No- one asked u for your comment or your in-put, so just dont, OK!! I dont want your in-put only people who are interested and want to do it, you are not interested, so dont worry about it. Pick on someone else and not someone who is trying to do something new for them-selves, OK, THANKS.

If this is a book that you intend to sell, I think it may be a hard sell. For these types of recipes I think folks who buy want it as a history of traditions. We have just been given a facsimile of the original Joy of Cooking, printed in 1931. It is interesting--and still very useful.
We are used to having fruit like strawberries all year round, but in that time they used those recipes in season so they are alll there.
We have a family cookbook that has a "heritage" section--old recipes from past "ancestors". Fun to have as a history and tradition, but only because it is my family.
Maybe not in Australia, but in the US there is a GLUT of cookbooks, and a lot of them are not good.

I have all kinds of vintage recipes, SpiritWolf.

Here's a recipe for my Great-aunt Velma's soft, puffy sugar cookies:

Aunt Velma's Sugar Cookies
1 cup Shortening
1 cup Sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla
8 teaspoon milk
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
2 cups plus flour

Cream together shortening and sugar. Beat in eggs. Add vanilla and almond extracts. Mix in dry ingredients. Roll out to 1/2" thickness on a flowered board. Cut in large circles, sprinkle with sugar and bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet in preheated 325 degree oven till just barely golden.

Apple Snow
Found this floating around. Haven't eaten it for years and you don't bake it but its a start...This one doesn't use pie apples but I am sure you could subsitute...goodluck finding all your recipes!

4-6 cooking apples, cored and thinkly sliced
1 C castor sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 egg whites

Put apples in a saucepan with a little water. Cover and cook until soft. Puree or push through a sieve and measure out 1 cup of puree. Add sugar and lemon juice and leave to cool. Whisk egg whites until stiff, fold in apple mixture and continue whisking until fluffy. Pile into tall glasses and decorate with whipped cream and toasted almond slivers.

I sell old books and paper on ebay.... Currently I have some 1909 era White House cookbooks. How many "Old Fashioned Recipes" would you like? ;) ;) ;)

Seriously, I can peek at them if someone has a request.
