Food Friday: Appetizers from South Carolina

It's important to remember that the main reason behind publishing community cookbooks is that they were used to raise funds for the community. In some cases, the cookbook will provide information about what projects the funds will benefit.

Today's Food Friday comes from 300 Years of Carolina Cooking. (Including Game Preparation). Published by The Junior League  of Greenville, Inc. 1970. Tricentennial Edition.

This cookbook includes a nice list of projects this Junior League has supported through their fundraising efforts.

The other thing I like about this 318 page cookbook is that it appears to list the women's actual given names under their married names. So nice to see women identified by their given names.

Today's Food Friday is a page of appetizers from the book. I love appetizers and could eat meals of just them alone. One of the appetizers includes bacon which we know makes everything taste better.
