I love old recipe booklets, so when I come across them they get my attention for a while. This one from Gold Medal Flour amused me, and since most of us have enough recipes for goodies we want to try, I thought I'd share some of the most unappetizing recipes it held with you.....
I know it was important to use every part of the animal years ago, but when we get to the tongue, suddenly I get a little queasy:
As if scalloped tongue wasn't bad enough, putting tongue in jelly just adds insult to injury:
I don't know about you, but I get tired of chicken pot pie. But I'm not sure squirrel pot pie is the alternative I'm looking for:
....and did you know gray squirrels and fox squirrels tasted better than other squirrels? I guess that's good information.

There's something about eating brains that rubs me the wrong way. Perhaps "White Sauce No. 3" and a can of mushrooms will take calf's brains to another level:
If you run out of fresh turtles (I hate it when that happens!), it's good to know you can substitute a calf's head and make yourself some Mock Turtle Soup:
Gee, we've run out of flour! With all these great recipes, we're going to need more.....
