With nuts.

Can you read the city/state? I see “Miss.,” but I don’t find any cities in Mississippi with letters like that…

    I collect old cookbooks & love when there’s a handwritten recipe in the pages. Sometimes there’s a recipe cut out of magazine. I love reading all the old recipes. Would you consider doing subscriptions (by email). I would love to get an email letting me know there was a new post & anything else you want to share. Thanks for saving these recipe boxes & recipes.

  2. I searched “saltesburg missouri” and came up with either Altenburg or Salibury in Missouri. Since the last letter in the town on the card looks like a definite “g” to me, I am going with Altenburg. . .
