Vintage Autumn Celebration: Week 12 - Mapleine Fried Ham & Maple Pumpkin Pie

For our family, turkey is for Thanksgiving and ham is for Christmas. Which is why I saved two great holiday recipes for the second to last week of this Vintage Autumn Celebration!
The first recipe is for Maple Pumpkin Pie from The Good House Keeping Cook Book, 1944. I think adding maple to a pumpkin pie sounds just perfect. I'm planning on using this recipe for our Christmas dessert!

The second recipe is for Mapeline Fried Ham from the Mapleine Cook Book from the 1930s. I thought it was an interesting idea to add Mapleline flavoring to ham - and to even make a gravy with it. I might give this one a go!

Since this is the last recipe from the awesome Mapleine Cook Book, I thought I'd share this little ad from the cookbook geared towards campers. I love the artwork of the bottle too. 😊

Vintage Autumn Celebration: Week 11 - Maple Nut Ice Cream & Maple Nut Brittle

We're down to Week 11 for the Vintage Autumn Celebration. I had originally just planned 12 weeks, but when I was looking more closely at the calendar, I saw that we have 13 weeks until the start of Winter! This worked out well, because I hadn't planned a series finale yet. I've stumbled on some exciting maple recipes for ending the series, so stay tuned for those!
This week's recipes come from two different, but new sources to this series. 
The first recipe is for Maple Nut Ice Cream from The Boston Cooking School Cook Book, ca. 1945. This book title has a long history, and many previous and subsequent editions. I was happy to get my hands on a wartime edition - at least it was published during the war. It doesn't say much about rationing. I went ahead and included both ice cream recipes and the full list of all the amazing variations. I think it's really fun to compare vintage recipe flavors with modern ones - and to see which ones have stood the test of time…
