What makes a recipe an heirloom?
Heirloom recipes reflect honest food that's grandmother tested and family approved. No need for a test-kitchen for these recipes. The fact that they have been handed down through the generations is proof enough to us!
Heirloom Meals is much much more than recipes but we realize that recipes indeed reflect many of the stories we are hearing from people.
Not surprisingly, many of the "recipes" from days gone by are actually "guides" that a seasoned cook whips up without ever opening a cookbook. So here are some of Carole's Concoctions and the beginning of the collection from her radio guests and others who are willing to share.
What about your own family's Heirloom Recipes?
