It was a long time ago but as I recall kuchen was kind of like coffee cake. They had a milk cow and had a lot of heavy cream to find uses for. Her kuchen recipe used it. And she cooked it in a wood fired oven in her kitchen. It was hot as hell one day a week in the summer when she baked.OT, cookie jars are something to cherish even with a saucer lid. You’re lucky to get your hands on that recipe. Thought kuchen was a cookie, but its a cake.
We used to make ice cream in the winter and a couple of times we made butter. My mother must have sold the old hand crank ice cream maker and her butter churn at a garage sale, we never found them.Speaking of cows, my sister still has the crock churn and dasher that my grandmother made butter in. I remember using it as a child. Boy did my arms hurt !! She took it as a labor of love, not a task.
Did you know the first margarine i ever saw was white 1/4 lb. sticks with a packet of powered orange coloring to mix in to make it yellow.Chandler, my mom in Ohio made butter when I was young. I was embarrassed we didn’t have sticks of margarine like my friends.
