Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Recipe Folder For Jacob's Hothouse Mushrooms [for sale by Home Dairy Co.]


The front panel features a drawing of Creamed Mushrooms and Creamed Mushrooms on toast with a glowing candle behind the dishes. The back panel has the heading "The Daily Harvest" and promotional text about the plentiful mushroom yield and how fresh and sanitary the product is. There is an illustration of a man picking mushrooms and placing them in a basket. The writing "For Sale by Home Dairy Company, Lansing, Michigan" is on the bottom right-hand side, stamped on a designated blank area. The inside of this leaflet shows more illustrations of dishes made with mushrooms, including Steak with Mushrooms, Mushrooms Nestled in Lamb Chops and Rice with Mushrooms, Peppers and Tomatoes. In boldface it says "Mushrooms As Food Extenders." The leaflet unfolds once more to reveal a long page of mushroom recipes, including Steak with Mushrooms, Eggs and Mushrooms, Mushroom Broth with Noodles and Creamed Crabs with Mushrooms.
