Home economist Pat Cobe developed many of the dips for Perdue. I asked her how she got her ideas, and learned that when composing a recipe she starts out by imagining all the dips she’s sampled at restaurants or food conventions or parties, or ones she’s read about in magazines and cookbooks. Then in her imagination, she puts together the best ideas from all of them. As she sorts these ideas around in her mind, she’ll come up with something new, and then she’ll test it. Of all the ones she thinks of, the only ones that she would consider actually recommending to Perdue, would have to meet her criteria of being “real food for real people.” Like this one.

4 cups

1/4 cup chopped scallions

1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice

1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste

Jewish Recipes – Preserve Recipes – Recipes for Preserves


Jewish Recipes

Bruise gently, with the back of a wooden spoon, six pounds of fine
fresh fruit, and boil them with very little water for twenty minutes,
stirring until the fruit and juice are well mixed; then put in
powdered loaf sugar of equal weight to the fruit, and simmer half an
hour longer. If the preserve is not required to be very rich, half the
weight of sugar in proportion to the quantity of fruit may be used;
but more boiling will be requisite. By this recipe also are made
raspberry, currant, gooseberry, apricot, and other jams.
