I found an old coffee can filled with old recipes that my great-grandmother used from the 1920's through the 1970's. While I have yet to actually try any, I hope to this coming summer, as there are a LOT of recipes for preserves. Some of these recipes are handwritten, and many are torn from newspapers and magazines. Please enjoy, and let me know if you try any!

White Sauce

2 tablespoonfuls of butter
4 tablespoonfuls of flour
2 cupfuls of milk
1/4 teaspoonful of salt

Melt the butter, add flour, and stir until smooth. Add milk and cook, stirring until a smooth sauce is obtained. Season with salt and pepper.
