    I recently bought a smoker and in searching for old-time Polish sausage recipes I found a collection I think you will get a kick out of in browsing through. Comes from an old butcher supplier, B. Heller Co. Chicago. I think may still be in business, and this was meant for commercial butchers. Recipes for everything from all sorts of sausages to kraut to mincemeat. I really enjoyed browsing through and I bet you will too.

    Pretty interesting reading.

    I didn't read it all but will come back when I have more time.

    Thank you,

    Same here. The last no came up empty.

    If you ever see this cook book somewhere pick it up, it's a hoot!

    That worked for me.

    Get it quickly before the mods disable it.

    They don't like links in the forum.

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Just beginning scanning.

    If nothing else, this is a treasure just for the historical relic qualities of it.

    Good luck and good smoking.
  8. That worked! Thanks! I collect Antique Cookbooks!

    The original link worked just fine for me. I bought a copy on Amazon a while back. Very poorly produced- it looked like just a bunch of mimeographed pages from a smaller book. There are some good recipes in there, but every one uses "Freeze-em-Pickle", and I have no idea how to convert that to something more modern. You can still get "Freeze-em-Pickle" from some company in San Francisco, but I prefer my bacon without ethylene glycol in it.

    Freeze-em pickle is used for making a brine or used in certain recipe’s for cured sausages. Use Freeze-Em-Pickle as directed in your formula or recipe. The proper use is the responsibility of the user. Ingredients: Salt, Sodium Nitrite, Dextrose, Propylene Glycol.


    I think you are confusing Ethylene with Propylene glycol.. Propylene Glycol is an approved food additive...

    Mea culpa, you're right. I was relying on memory as I didn't have the data right here. I should know better.
