Vintage Cookery Tips & Tricks {1940s – 1950s}

We haven’t had a vintage tips list for quite awhile here on Tipnut and I figured it’s about time!

Retro HousewivesHere’s a bunch of snippets I’ve collected from old magazines and cookbooks, there might be a new trick or two in the bunch that you find helpful. Enjoy!

Grandmother’s Lettuce (1953)

1 solid head lettuce
1 bunch spring onions
6 slices bacon, diced
1/2 cup vinegar

Wash, drain, and shred the lettuce. Sprinkle diced onions over lettuce. Fry the bacon golden brown. Drain off the accumulated fat. Mix this with the vinegar. Heat this combination. Pour over the lettuce. Sprinkle bacon on top. Serve at once. Makes 4 servings.
