The Corn Cookbook | by Elizabeth O. Hiller



Save the wheat is the call that has been sent out from Washington to the housekeepers of America. In response to this urgent plea, this new War Edition of the Corn Cook Book containing 200 recipes has been compiled, showing the various ways that this valuable cereal can be utilized so as to save wheat for ourselves and our Allies. Corn is the American Indian's greatest gift to civilization. The early colonists used it to a large extent. It is still one of the most important and delectable foods of the South and the New England States. No one who has tasted the real Southern Cora Pone will ever forget its deliciousness.
