Contributed by members of the Pennsylvania German Folklore Society in Ontario, this little volume contains remedies and cures for everything from colds to corns to cholera, and recipes from soup to soap to summer sausage. These instructions (which we don’t recommend using) are interspersed with family and local history tidbits.
