Food Friday: Rice with Pimentoes

Today's recipes are courtesy of the 1917 cookbook, The Community Cook Book. Compiled and published by the Woman's Auxiliary of the First Presbyterian Church. South Orange, New Jersey.

From the collection of Gena Philibert-Ortega

Rice and Pimentoes, a tasty sounding combination. There are actually two recipes for this on the same page. I like that one calls for a "snappy" cheese. The other recipe concludes "this is always liked." Was there a little competition with the rice dishes there at the First Presbyterian Church?

One of the reasons I love this cookbook is that it's full of advertisements. Including this one at the top of the page for a guy who owns an auto livery and is the  undertaker.

Have you or a family member ever made Rice with Pimentoes? What's your recipe for this dish?
