Searching for more old recipes...

Here are new recipes searches...if you have any of these, please let me know.

Searching for Recipe from the Uncle Ben’s Package:
"Years ago, my favorite aunt used to take a package of Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild rice, cook it according to directions, and then do something with onions and canned B&B mushrooms and combine them. She served it as a side dish, but it was so delicious I sometimes ate it as my main course. I've tried Uncle Ben's but can't locate it; I'd really appreciate some help. Thanks, Mary"

Anyone heard of Artichoke Foam? Seeking Recipe…
"Years ago I had a recipe for artichoke foam, I move from Mass. to Fla and somehow it got lost. I remember sitting own after I steamed the artichokes and patiently scrapping all the leaves to get the pulp of the artichokes to make the recipe. If anybody has the recipe you will make one old lady happy. M. Roy"

Pastry Stuffed with Potatoes and Onions:
"I found your site from the Wall Street Journal, and I thought I would give this a try. I am trying to find a recipe that my husband remembers when he was growing up in Northeastern Pennsylvania. He would dearly love to have this again, and I have no idea how to go about making it, as I have never heard of it nor had it before. It was called “Pumpish” (sp?) Made with unleavened bread dough (?). The dough was rolled out, you put ground potatoes, onions and salt & pepper on top of the dough, seal the ends together and roll the whole thing flat. It was then baked on a cookie sheet. If anyone can find a recipe like this, I would be very grateful."

Searching for a Fruit Cake recipe with mashed bananas.
"Back in the early fifties, my sister in law gave me a recipe for fruit cake that included mashed bananas, dates and two small jars of preserves (any flavor you like) as well as the usual candied fruit and raisins. It was a dark fruitcake made with brown sugar and real butter. I have lost the recipe and can’t remember the proportions. I have done a google search and found several that were similar, but none with all of the ingredients I remember. It was a large recipe that would not fit in a standard mixing bowl, but had to be mixed in a large canning pot or old fashioned dish pan. Have you heard of this recipe?"
