Betty Crocker Cookbook from 1951

Post  Nonna.PapaVino on 9/12/2013, 10:48 pm

Anyone out there with a copy of the 1951 edition of the Betty Crocker Cookbook?  Evidently there is a killer pickle recipe therein that my son is trying to find.  Evidently, later editions of the cookbook had a different recipe.  Nonna

My BC cookbook is 1969. There's only one recipe for pickles; it's called 'Chunk Pickles'.

Both of mine are 1950, only have a refrigerator beet pickle recipe.  I have a hard bound and ring bound.

G.G., Thank you.  My search on line at book stores like Powell's indicates the 1951 edition of BC cookbook may be a second printing, and your 1950 printing the original.  So, no dill pickle recipe in it, huh?  Methinks the guy who put up the dill pickles my son was so enamored of gave him an incorrect source for the recipe, by mistake or deviousness. 

And thanks to all of you who responded with info from their Betty Crocker cookbooks.  With over a hundred cookbooks in this house, my old 1960s version of BC has gone missing.  Too many moves between then and now, I guess.  Think I'll go wandering through Powell's cookbook section to see which versions they currently have for sale!  Nonna

Now you've got me wondering; maybe it's the BH&G Cookbook, not Betty Crocker? According to their website,(http://www.bhg.com/recipes/how-to/cooking-basics/a-little-lore-on-americas-no-1-cookbook/)that one has been around  since 1930. But, alas, mine isn't anywhere near that old, so I can't check.
Continued happy hunting!
