I sing this glorious land of ours,
Its motor cars and shows,
Its little gardens, gay with flowers,
Its phones and radios.
Here your ambitious boy may be
Our President if he’s able,
But what spells U.S.A. to me
Is “meat upon the table!”
Ours is the land of steaks and chops,
Of pork, beef, lamb and veal,
And thrifty costs when woman shops
Put meat in any meal.
So if at us should any scoff
Just show this patriot label—
One reason we are better off
Is “meat upon the table.”

This book taught me about the Canadian apple industry in the 1920s and The Fruit Act which defined the different grades of fruit grown here. The recipes for apple sauce, jam, jelly, butter, steamed, compote, baked, desserts, puddings, caramel, cakes, pies, relishes and salads are simply amazing.
