Upland CA. Good. N.D.. Softcover. (c1930). 108 pp. Many local ads throughout. About very good: Text block very good; no chips or tears a few corner tips creased. Original limp cloth cover somewhat faded with fraying to edges and creased corners. Poor paper quality of the title and last page resulting in heavy tone and edge chipping. Recipes with contributor's name have a strong representation of local fruits, especially citrus which Upland became known for. Lemon & Kumquat Marmalades; One-Two-Three-Four Marmalade (using grapefruit, lemon, orange & apples, 71). Many puddings including Date Nut; Grapefruit; Persimmon etc. Pickles and relishes included Fig Pickles & French Chow Chow, (59). Rink-Dam-Ditty (sic) which looks like an easier version of "Rinktum Ditty" a type of Welsh Rabbit or Tomato and Cheese on Toast, (53). Many of the adverts have a "catchy" recipe format ie, "Creighton's Recipe on How to Catch Big Fish: First -You must have a good rod. Second-An automatic reel. Third-a double tapered line. Fourth-A six-foot tapered leader. Fifth-A Jack Scott No. 14 fly. If you do not catch fish with this recipe, call Roy Creighton and have him check your tackle." Scarce.
