Vintage Recipe: Scalloped Apple & Cabbage

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 


This recipe for Scalloped Apple and Cabbage came from a newspaper clipping that was then copied (typed) onto a 3x5 index card. In this case, the clipping is still attached by paper clip to the recipe card! It was found in an old large recipe file box. I was unable to find any dates on the front of back of the newspaper clipping so the age of the recipe is still unknown.

Vintage Recipe: Applesauce Cake

I'm digging into old recipe boxes and rediscovering the family favorites hidden inside! You'll find carefully handwritten recipe cards, newspapers and magazines clippings and even some hastily scrawled directions on scraps of paper, all from years (and years) ago! They're all getting scanned and transcribed so you can enjoy them in your own home kitchen. 

When apples are in season, I usually buy a bunch and make applesauce. It's so delicious when it's warm, straight from the pot. I can the rest for enjoying the rest of the year.


This recipe for Applesauce Cake is a great way to use your applesauce! It was handwritten in beautiful blue script on both sides of an index card. The recipe card is not dated, however other cards from the same collection with the same script in the same blue pen were found with dates on them from 1941. The upper right corner notes the recipe came from Family Circle.
