(California – Booklet) The M.C.P. Recipe Book.


48 pp. Illus. Pictorial yellow wrappers. First Edition. Anaheim: Mutual Citrus Products, 1940.

Sadly not the “male chauvinist pig” cookbook, as I had hoped. This MCP stands for Mutual Citrus Products, which produced pectin, lemon juice, and other citrus products. Their recipes, pectin charts, and handy table of measures are within, as are illustrated step-by-step instructions for making jams and jellies. Fine.
