Well, it took long enough, but here is the request I got after this post about the cute little Carnation cookbook from the 1950s.
The request was to see pages 10 and 15, so here you go!
First, we will look at page 10.
Nothing doing this weekend?
Well, it happens sometimes. But instead of being a Sad Susie, why not get the girls together? Who knows… one of them just may have a brother or a cousin who’s dying to meet someone new! And whether it’s a snack, a supper or a lunch—try serving one of these specialties.
Ring around tuna salad
(Makes 6 servings)
1 tablespoon (1 envelope) unflavored gelatine
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 cup (6 1/2 or 7-ounce can) tuna
1/4 cup undiluted CARNATION EVAPORATED MILK
2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
1 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup drained and sliced ripe olives
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
Soften gelatine in cold water. Dissolve gelatine over hot water. Slowly add Carnation to mayonnaise in large bowl, stirring constantly. Add lemon juice, salt and dissolved gelatine. Fold in remaining ingredients and mix well. Spoon into 1 1/2-qurt mold. Chill in refrigerator until firm. Unmold on serving platter. Serve garnished with salad greens and cucumber or tomato slices.
Salad Making New to You?
Dissolving gelatine is simple. Place gelatine and cold water in a small heat-proof glass dish. Place in a small pan of hot water. Allow gelatine to stand in hot water 10 minutes.
Never unmolded salad before? Place salad mold in hot water for just a few seconds. Remove from water, place platter over the top… and flip! Garnish with greens and colorful vegetables.
Next we look at page 15.
Supper on a bread slice
(Makes plenty for 12 guests)
4 12-ounce cans luncheon meat
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 cup chopped green pepper
2/3 cup (small can) undiluted CARNATION EVAPORATED MILK
2 Pounds sliced process-type American cheese
4 loaves French bread
Shred luncheon meat into large bowl. Blend with horseradish, green pepper, and Carnation. Cut 8 cheese slices into thin strips, about 1/4 inch wide. Grate remaining cheese; add to meat mixture. Blend well. Split each loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Place on broiler rack. Spread cut bread surfaces with meat mixture. Broil 5 minutes 5-6 inches from heat. Criss-cross cheese strips over top of sandwich. Continue broiling 3 minutes more (until cheese is bubbly). Slice and serve at once.
Guests stopping by for cake and coffee?
No last-minute problems for you, when there’s a package of cake mix, a can of Carnation and coffee on teh shelf.
Last minute chocolate icing
(Makes icing for 9″ x 13″ cake)
1 cup (6-ounce package) semi-sweet chocolate pieces
1 1/2 cups sifted confectioners sugar
1/3 cup undiluted CARNATION EVAPORATED MILK
1/4 cup butter
Melt chocolate and butter together in small saucepan. Allow to cool thoroughly. Blend in sugar alternately with Carnation. Beat briskly to spreading consistency. Spread over top of cooled sheet cake, and garnish with chopped nuts, if desired.
P.S. The smart girl fills her cream pitcher with Carnation… the milk that whips. Brings out richer coffee flavor. For double-rich Carnation looks like cream, pours like cream, yet is far lower in cost.
Well, there you have it! If there are any other pages that you’d like to see, let me know in the comments!
