RECIPES FROM THE RETRO HOUSEWIFE
Cornstarch Pudding, American
Hello, These recipes are all cut out from a newspaper and were pasted in my Mother's notebook of recipes. She never had a regular one until she was close to 50 years old. I am presently putting them and more in a recipe book for my church.
Mix the cornstarch and salt with a cup of cold milk. Scald the remainder of the milk in the top of a double boiler. Add the cornstarch mixture to the scalded milk. Let it boil until thick and smooth, stirring constantly. Cover and cook in a double boiler twenty minutes. Just before taking from the fire, add syrup and vanilla flavoring. If chocolate is used, melt the chocolate and add some of the pudding to it, then mix with the rest of the pudding. Pour into individual dessert dishes and cool.
Show me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day. Psalm 25:4-5

I would like to thank Newspaperarchive for putting together such a fabulous service, and placing our Nation's history right at our fingertips. Many of these wonderful recipes are ones I stumbled upon quite by accident while sleuthing through the decades in my quest to assemble the world of the American housewife. RH
