The Ledger

I bought a small piece of property 2 doors up from my parents, it belonged to relatives. When my aunt bought the old lean too house it included an old tannery store ledger from the late 1880's, filled with great recipes. I still have that ledger, even though we tore down the old house and built a new one years ago.  I copied down most of the recipes before I donated the ledger to the local county historical society. Now I wish I had it back. Perhaps it wasn't a permanent loan.. I'll have to call and find out. I would like to scan the whole book now and give it back for safe keeping if I feel like it.. maybe I made a mistake.. you know? I'll post some of the recipes.. most of them are for sweets.
