WHAT MAKES JELLY "JELL"? Vintage Recipe Booklet Published by General Foods Corporation ©1945
WHAT MAKES JELLY "JELL"? is a softcover vintage recipe booklet published by General Foods Corporation in 1945. The recipe booklet is a great example of mid-century American retail advertising when store, food products, and new appliance promotions included branded cookbooks, recipe pamphlets and booklets as give-aways.
This jelly-making handbook includes four lessons on making jellies and jams using Certo and Sure-Jell. The introduction states the handbook will explain the "how" and "why" to become a better jelly maker, whether the cook is an experienced homemaker or a beginner. The lessons and recipes are written in a step-by-step format and many include a photograph for each step.
The 24-page softcover book is filled with colorful vintage illustrations and black/white photographs. It measures 8 ¼” high by 5 ½” wide and is very good condition and appears to be unused. The initials JM are written on the cover's top left corner.

We strive to provide you the best in antique, collectibles and vintage items and do our best to provide you within the written description as much information, whether it’s the history, manufacturer or condition, for each item we sell.
