We Help Make Economizing Appetizing
From the introduction:
....“Like thousands of other homemakers today, you're no doubt concerned about the apparent increase in food costs…. Through your letters to us and conversations with us, we at Hunt-Wesson Food have been made acutely aware of some of the frustrations you experience as you try to purchase foods that will be appealing to your family and toe the food budget line, too….
....“We've investigated some of the lesser-known and less expensive cuts of meat and found easy, delectable ways of preparing them. Our recipes sacrifice nothing in flavor, nutrition, or convenience but offer originality and imagination in preparation….”
....And what an excellent summary this is! The 25-page Hunt-Wesson booklet is filled with wise shopping tips plus economical beef, pork, poultry, and fish recipes. Not for vegetarians!
....No copyright is listed, but food prices on the front cover offer a clue: Halibut, 99˘/lb; Ground Beef, 57˘/lb; Fresh Fryer Breast, 67˘/lb. (I don't know about you, but I wish we had these prices back!)
