We searched the archives cook book collection to provide you with a couple of recipes for the holidays.

Both are from a book of “Personal Recipes” likely produced in the late 1950s as a fund raiser by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Canadian Legion Branch 17, Courtenay.

For those who really like to prepare in advance… Green Tomato Mincemeat from Mrs. L.M. Muir of Merville.

And for those cooks who like to always have something at the ready… Ice Box Cookies from Mrs. C.C. Holmes.
