Annie's Recipes and Remedies Cookbook
Spotsylvania Battlefield Education Association


~Annie Flora Myer~

Recipes & Remedies

The recipes and remedies in this book are taken from the handwritten notebook Miss Annie kept for many years, jotting down favorites from family, friends and magazines. The remedies are from a simplier time when everything from wild cherry bark to cocaine was available to homemakers. the recipes are designed for the cooks of another era, when sometimes just a list of ingredients was sufficient direction. They will be a challenge for the cooks of today. We hope you will find the challenge a happy endeavor.
