The Carnation Way Of Creaming Vegetables


The green and white front has a platter of asparagus with a creamed sauce on a slice of bread. The title is at the top in white with the company name and address in green print on a white banner at the bottom. The back has four recipes above an illustration of a divided serving dish with vegetables beside a red and white can of Carnation Milk. Above the illustration is a promo to send in for the booklet, "The Story of Carnation Milk." The front end page and first page have "The Carnation Way of Creaming Vegetables" which describes the food value of creamed vegetables, why Carnation "adds flavor" and the economical value of creamed vegetables. One page tells how to make white sauce for various vegetables, followed by three pages of recipes. There are no page numbers.
