Do you like to read recipe books? It is one of my favorite past times. Since we have been married over fifty years you can be sure I have plenty of recipes.
You can probably tell that many of them are tried and true (this means they have been cooked many times).
The old recipes take you back in time. You can almost associate an old recipe with a person or an event in your life.
One of these recipes is Brother Stanley Hargett's Favorite Punch. This punch can be used for family or any other kind of gathering. Today I'm sharing some of these recipes with you. You might find one of your grandmother's recipes in this group.
