3 More Recipes

I have decided to put on these recipes, as I probably won't be making them anytime soon. In fact, the artichokes are too expensive for now, so who's knows if I will get to try this. Miss living up in Lompoc and Salinas sometimes, where most of these grow. Also I haven't use sweet and sour sauce yet, so thought I would share with those of you who do. The barbecue recipe is an plus, I guess you could say 2 recipes on one card. What a deal!
Let me know what you think!

New and Different Baker Artichokes by Bianca Centofanti
6 Artichokes
1/4 cup lemon juice
Flour, all purpose
1 cup olive oil
6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon parsley
1/2 teaspoon basil
2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese, grated
salt and pepper to taste
Remove outer leaves of the artichokes leaving only the more tender leaves. Cut into fourths and remove the choke. Soak in cold water, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon salt for 15 minutes. Drain and towel dry, dust with flour. In a large frying pan heat 1/2 of the oil (so that would be 1/2 cup), add the artichokes and cook over medium heat until golden brown on each side (about 15 minutes.) Put the artichokes in a well greased oven proof baking dish, add the remainder of the oil, parsley, basil and cheese. Beat eggs, adding salt, pepper and milk. Pour over the artichokes and bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes or until eggs are firm. Serves 4 to 6.

This recipe is in Granny's handwriting and I know Granny tried every recipe she wrote, so must have been good!

Sweet and Sour Sauce
Mix these three next ingredients together:
1 box of powdered sugar
1 cup brown sugar, light
3 tablespoons corn starch

1 1/2 tablespoon horseradish
1 cup vinegar
1 can crushed pineapple (#303 size can)
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup chili sauce
1/3 cup minced dry onions
3 tablespoons soy sauce (or 4 tablespoons)
Mix all together and cook until clear and thickened. (This is with the above mixed ingredients, pwd sug, brwn sug and corn starch.)

On the card is also another recipe from Granny's neighbor, Maragret

Barbecue Sauce
1 bottle ketchup
1 cup honey
1 tablespoon mustard
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 garlic clove, minced
Mix all together.
I would think that this is a 16 ounce size bottle of ketchup, maybe more. Make sure you heat this all up until it boils and then use it.

I had many a letters with this statement on them. "Will call you later, here comes the mail man." Or "Need to get this in the mail, as the mail man is coming."
too funny! Since I have a son on a mission now, sometimes, I say: "That's it for now, as I want to get this in the mail."
Hope you will enjoy these recipes!
