2nd Annual Heirloom Recipe Exchange

This is the first of two, count ’em, TWO webinars for Myrt’s 2nd Annual Heirloom Recipe Exchange & PC Party being held in a Facebook Group here.

Melissa LeMaster Barker says “Don’t forget to be on the lookout for recipes from your ancestors for medicine. Before pharmacies and other medical facilities, our family members concocted home remedies! And yes, they were called “receipts” before “recipes.”

This tattered recipe from Wendy Gunderson’s great-grandmother ended up being Molasses cookies. Watch her Facebook LIVE demo here. Find out about the whys and wherefores of “folding in” versus “stiring” ingredients together.
