    Our oldest has a first printing of 1901, the current edition from 1965, another is from 1932, the current one from 1942. They get used, too! They are interesting for foundational recipes.

    Where the heck did recipes go wrong?? These are the way recipes should look. Just simple instructions on how to make a thing, all assuming you aren't lobotomized.

    I want to make most of this now.

    I have to say I've never boiled honey. And those recipes from Apicus sounds like Sally Fallon recipes.

    people often tear out the pages and frame them i bought a second book so i could use menu pages.
    so if you see one make sure all the pages are there.
