Many small rural churches raise money by printing and selling cookbooks. My cousins published Cousins Cookbook for such a purpose and sold 2000 copies.
Many recipes were off food boxes or from their notebooks.
Nothing fancy, just food for large farm families with standard non-healthy ingredients.
I remember visits to the farms and us kids catching chickens and watching the ladies "process" them. Sometimes we would fish and "process" them ourselves. Boys love this stuff.
I inherited the book and keep it for memories of the older folks now passed who signed the recipes and wrote the introduction about family and religion and the church.
The book has little value but the memories are priceless.
