FC: MeMa Judy's Cookbook | made with love for Jan, Marsha, and Stephenie

1: For years Woodard has urged me to create a cookbook for our girls. Knowing what a challenge it would be, I just let it go in one ear and out the other. This year he finally succeeded in persuading me. As I am a "taste" cook, getting recipes down on paper is a challenge. Chicken Salad, cole slaw, potato salad, etc. may use one half cup Miracle Whip this week and a full cup next week, depending on how strong the hen is etc. However, I have given it my best effort; making each dish and putting the recipe on paper, trying to make all of the instructions clear and accurate as possible. This recipe book is a labor of love. I pray that each of you will find joy and pleasure in using it. Hopefully, the grandchildren will enjoy it for years to come. I love you! MeMa I want to give Meredith J. Cantrell a great big hug and thank you for helping with this cookbook. She has been my editor in chief and done an excellent job. Thanks Meredith, Love you! Aunt Judy

4: FRIED CHICKEN One 2 1/2 to 3 pound fryer Cut up chicken, salt and pepper. Mix together 3/4 cup flour and enough water to make a loose paste. Dip chicken in paste and coat well. Drop in hot peanut oil and fry til done, about 15 to 17 minutes depending on the size of piece. Pierce with fork and if juices are not red, should be done. COUNTRY FRIED STEAK Cut tenderized round steak in fry size pieces. Salt and pepper. Coat with flour. Heat peanut oil in frying pan about l/2” deep. Drop steak into pan and brown, turning over to brown other side. Take up and drain on paper towel. Drain off all oil, keeping only crumbles from steak in pan. Add about 1/3 cup water. Mix flour and water til flour is dissolved. Add mixture to liquid in pan and stir til smooth, adding enough water to make gravy desired thickness. Heat on stove on medium heat til gravy thickens, constantly stirring. May need to add more water and probably a little salt. I like to add dried onions to my gravy, and chopped raw onions can be used also. Can add a couple of pieces of steak to gravy if desired. For country style steak, add all steak to gravy along with a enough water to accommodate steak. Simmer a bit. STEAK GRAVY Steak gravy can be made by draining oil from pan steak has been cooked in. Add about 1/3 cup water to drippings and stir well. Add 1/2 package Lipton onion soup mix and 1 can cream of mushroom soup to drippings. Stir well and cook over medium heat til smooth and heated through. May need to add more water. Can add steak to gravy or serve as country fried. | 1

5: PORK CHOPS Salt, pepper and flour each pork chop cut for frying. Drop in about 1/2” peanut oil already hot, cooking over medium high to high heat,depending on thickness of chop. Brown on each side. Drain grease. Add about 1/3 cup water to drippings. Mix flour and water til flour is dissolved and a little thicker than milk. Add to pan drippings along with a little water and probably salt. Simmer til thickens, stirring to keep from sticking. Can add more water, if needed. RIB ROAST Salt and pepper roast. Wrap in foil and place in roaster. Add enough water to pan to cover the bottom well. Cover with lid. Bake at 500 for about 12 to 15 minutes per pound. Check with sharp knife by sticking in roast to see how red the juice is. For a medium well roast, probably need to cook a little longer. Let roast sit about 20 to 30 minutes before serving. TURKEY Wash turkey. Rub outside of turkey with oil. Rub the turkey inside and out with salt. Put a pat of butter between skin and meat at thick part of thigh. Wrap turkey in foil and place in roaster, add a quart of water to bottom of pan and bake an ll pound turkey til done about 3 1/2 hours. Rub turkey with butter to help with browning process. | BAKED HAM Smithfield Sugar Cured Ham, I personally am not fond of the spiral cut ones. Wrap ham in foil good. Place in roaster pan with bottom of pan covered in about 1/2 inch of water. Bake at 325 to 350 for about 15 minutes per pound. Check with knife to see if tender. As soon as tender, remove from oven. Do not overcook. | 2

6: POT ROAST 4 to 6 pound beef roast 1 can of cream of mushroom soup 6 medium potatoes, quartered 1/2 package Lipton onion soup 6 carrots, cut into 2" pieces Brown roast on all sides in a little oil in a pan on top of stove. Place roast in roaster pan with cream of mushroom soup and 1 can of water and package onion soup mix. Bake in over until tender. Add carrots and potatoes. May need to add more water as roast cooks. Roast can be placed in a slow cooker to cook also. | BEEF STEW 3 to 4 pounds beef stew onions 1 can beef broth Rinse beef, and add to pot, along with beef broth, water, and either raw onions or dried onions. Season with red pepper, salt and black pepper to taste. Cook til tender. Can add potatoes and carrots or any other vegetables desired about 1 hour before serving.

7: BARBECUE SAUCE 2/3 cups vinegar 1/2 cup water 3 tablespoon ketchup red pepper to taste 1/2 cup sugar Heat all ingredients on stove til thoroughly hot. Add enough sugar to make sauce taste sweet. | BARBECUED RIBS Country style backbone 1/4 cup vinegar 1 teaspoon red pepper Cook ribs in a large boiler with water, vinegar, red pepper and salt. When tender, drain ribs and put into a roaster and add a generous amount of barbecue sauce; simmer in oven. Sometimes, I brown the ribs in oven before adding sauce. I think it adds flavor. | Chicken Salad 1 6lb hen, salted, boiled til tender, deboned and cut up. 3 to 4 eggs 1/2 cup chopped sweet pickles 3/4 cup miracle whip (or more) 1/4 to 1/2 cup pickle vinegar scant 1/4 cup sugar Chop eggs. Mix ingredients together. Can add poultry seasonings, if chicken is too mild (1/2 teaspoon). Chicken salad is a to taste dish. This is just a basic guide. Can add celery if desired. | 4

8: PAPA'S GRILLING INSTRUCTIONS | PORK CHOPS Turn grill on 450 and preheat, add 1 1/4" thick chops, salted and peppered to grill and turn heat down to 350. Cook about 30 minutes til thoroughly done, turning to brown on both sides. CHICKEN Preheat grill to 300 to 325. Add halves or quartered chicken pieces, skin side up. Cook at least 2 to 3 hours. Do not turn over until about 5 minutes before taking up if you want a crispy skin. Take up and add sauce. STEAK Preheat grill to 450. Salt and pepper a 1 1/4 to 1 1/2" filet or rib eye steak and add to grill. Cook 8 minutes and turn over and cook about 8 more minutes. If like steak medium or well done, will need to cook a little longer. HAMBURGERS Preheat grill to 450. Make hamburger patties reasonably thin, salt and pepper. Cook on each side about 10 minutes each til completely done. TURKEY Prepare turkey just like you are going to cook in oven. Place roaster pan in grill and cook til done. Frees up oven for other things when preparing a lot of food for the holidays. Keep lid closed. | 5

9: Barbecue Sauce 2/3 cup vinegar, if vinegar is too strong, add a little water 3 tablespoons ketchup 1/3 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper to taste 1/2 cup sugar Mix and heat all ingredients on stove. Can add 1/2 stick margarine if desired when using on lean meats such as pork chops. I usually use without margarine. I like my sauce to be sweet and hot. If not sweet or hot enough, add a little more sugar or pepper. | Sauces | Kathy's Barbecue Sauce 2 cups vinegar 2 cups ketchup 2 teaspoons paprika 4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce 4 teaspoons dry mustard 2 teaspoons onion flakes 1/2 tablespoon crushed red pepper 1/2 teaspoon black pepper Mix and pour over 3/4 box light brown sugar, add 3 ounces Texas Pete ( about 1/2 of a 6 ounce bottle.)

10: Sides | CHICKEN DRESSING (Grandma Jackson's basic recipe) 1 quart chicken or turkey broth 1 cup chopped celery 1/2 cup onions, chopped 1 10” cake corn bread 3 package Premium crackers, crushed 1 can chicken and rice soup 4 eggs, boiled and chopped poultry seasoning to taste chopped chicken or turkey, about 1 to 2 cups Combine broth, onions, celery and poultry seasoning. Cook until onion and celery is tender. Bake cornbread. In large container, crumble cornbread into small pieces, add crackers, and eggs, and cover with broth mixture. Use more crackers if needed. Mixture should be just a little sloppy so it won't be too dry. You can add more broth if mixture tends to be dry. I mix to taste adding poultry seasoning, or salt mostly if needs something. If flat tasting, may need more celery. Sometimes, I add a little celery salt, too. I grease a pan, and make patties, and bake in a 500 degree oven til brown on bottom and turn over and brown other side. | CHICKEN PASTRY Boil a 6 to 7 pound salted hen til tender. Can use a broiler chicken, if desired, but I prefer the broth from a hen. Remove chicken from broth. Set broth in refrigerator overnight. Remove from refrigerator and skim off all fat. Heat broth til boiling, taste to see if it is salty enough. Add Anne's or other frozen pastry according to directions, adding black pepper at intervals. If broth is too mild, Swanson Chicken Broth and 2 or 3 chicken cubes improves the flavor. If you wish to make your own pastry use: 3 cups self-rising flour 1 egg well beaten 1 cup boiling water Make a well in flour; add water and stir. Add egg while mixing with flour. Mix well and knead. Pinch into 4 or 5 parts, roll out. Cut into thin strips, lay on wax paper and cover with towel to sit overnight. | 7

Mix 3/4 cup sugar with enough water to melt and 3 to 4 teaspoons cinnamon. Pour over potatoes. Dot with about 6 pats of butter. Bake in oven til mixture completely melted about 20 to 30 minutes. Can add more water if liquid begins to candy or get too thick. | FRIED SQUASH 5 or 6 small squash, sliced thin crossways 1/2 cup flour Salt and pepper squash, stir in flour, trying to keep each piece separate. Heat oil on high heat, drop in squash and fry till just begin to brown and get crisp. Do not cook too long. Golden brown is better. | 8

12: FRENCH FRIES Peal about 8 to 10 potatoes and slice for fries. Heat about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of peanut oil til hot, add about half of fries, when they resume cooking well, add balance of fries. Do not stir til about half done, then stir very gently. (Oil does not need to cover fries completely). I use regular red potatoes. | CREAMED POTATOES Peal desired number of potatoes and cook til tender. When ready to cream, use sour cream and milk to mix. Salt and pepper to taste. | TWICE BAKED POTATOES To left over creamed potatoes, add additional sour cream, chives, bacon bits, and cheese.

Combine soup, margarine, salt, pepper, onion and cheese. Gently mix in the potatoes and pour into prepared pan. Bake in 350 oven for 35 to 40 minutes.

Mix Jello with liquid per box directions. Chill. Add other ingredients. Refrigerate. When begins to jell, add drained fruit.

Add lard, and enough milk to begin to work biscuits. Work the lard with fingers, helping it to dissolve with the buttermilk and blend with the flour. Continue to pull flour from the edges of well until dough is sticking together well and ready to roll over or turn. Working the dough too much makes tough biscuits. As soon as dough is formed well enough, pinch off golf ball size pieces, dip in flour and roll in floured hands just enough to make a ball and place on pan. Press each biscuit gently on top. Bake 500 on top rack in oven til brown on bottom, then turn oven to broil to brown top of biscuit. | BAKED CORNBREAD 3/4 cup white corn meal 3/4 teaspoon salt 3/4 self-rising flour water 8 tablespoons bacon grease or olive oil Mix corn meal, flour, and salt together.

Sprinkle top of cornbread lightly with salt. | Recipe from Kathy Jones | 22

76: Helpful Hints | Hints for Cakes, Icings and Cookies * Your frosting will look more professional if you first frost with a thin layer and let it set. Then apply the second coat of frosting. * Dipping the cookie cutter in slightly warm salad oil will give you a much cleaner cut. * A quick frosting can be made by adding a bit of chocolate syrup to prepared whipped topping. * To cut down on cholesterol, substitute two egg whites stiffly beaten for each whole egg called for. * Icings won't become grainy if a pinch of salt is added to the sugar. * Use cocoa to dust baking tins so cookies and cakes won't have a floury look. * For a thinner, crispier rolled cookie try rolling the dough directly onto a greased and floured cookie sheet. Cut the cookies out then pick up the scrap dough. * If eggs are beaten and slowly added to batter, it won't make the batter too stiff. * Cookies will stay moist in the jar if a slice of bread is placed in the jar. * Two tablespoons of salad oil added to cake mix keeps the mix moist. * Adding a pinch of salt to chocolate dishes will enhance the flavor.
