Today Granny was leafing through some of her old craft books and one monthly series of books titled "The Workbasket, Home and Needlecraft for pleasue and profit" from 1959 contained how to articles on hooking rugs, making a filet runner, a placemat, knitting gloves, etc. It also contained recipes and the name of one caught my attention and I was wondering if anyone had ever heard of it or better still made it. 100 Year Old Pork Cake 1 pound salt pork (all fat) 1 pint boiling water 4 cups sugar 1/2 cup molasses 1 egg 1 teaspoon soda 1 teaspoon nutmeg 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1 teaspoon cloves 1 pound raisins 6 cups flour Put pork through grinder, pour boiling water over it, and let stand until lukewarm. Stir in sugar, spices, soda, well beaten egg and molasses. Sift flour before measuring. Add flour and fruit to pork mixture stirring until well blended. Pour into well greased baking pans and bake for 2 hours in 300 degree oven or until done. This cake can be eaten as soon as baked and cooled, or it will keep for weeks, therefore, it is especilly good for outdoor meals and picnics.
