Health-For-Victory Club May 1943 Canning Guide


Several months ago I promised to scan and post the contents of a WWII (1943) booklet about canning that I acquired at an estate sale. After some scanner problems and then misplacing the booklet itself, I am now ready to post it. I have found it while packing for our move and been able to turn it into PDF files so that I can share it with all of you here. I have split the contents into three parts (posted today, next Monday, and the Monday after that):

1. Methods & Menus
2. Recipes for beverages, breads, cakes, cheese, chicken, desserts, eggs, fish, fresh & dried fruits, and pasta
Recipes for meats, pastry, salads, sandwiches, sauces, soups, and vegetables.

The book was produced by Westinghouse Electric and The Home Economics Institute in May 1943 and is called the Health-For-Victory Club Meal Planning Guide.

    I cannot get this to print, could you please offer advise or send it to email ?

    • It has to be printed from Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is a program available online for free download. It is a PDF format because there are many pages and it would take much more space to post each page individually. I’m sorry you are having an issue with this.
