‘Cooking Through the Ages’

‘Cooking Through the Ages’

    When Moselle United Methodist Church was organized in 1879 as Hopewell Methodist Church, the women of the church probably tucked their children in at night beneath handmade quilts. Today, 137 years later, they still make quilts—and other items of comfort, all for charitable donations. Members of the church’s Susie Long Circle last year provided 150 decorative pillowcases and knit hats for young patients at Children’s Hospital, in Jackson. Their current projects include making quilts and blankets for sick children in the Laurel/Hattiesburg area, as well as for adults suffering from chronic illness.
    Sales of the church cookbook, “Cooking Through the Ages,” funds these good works. The cookbook was published to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the church building in 2014 and to help fund efforts to restore the aging structure. The work done, cookbook proceeds now help the women of the church help others through their handwork.
    The cookbook offers favorite recipes enjoyed by generations of southerners: cornbread, honey biscuits, cheese grits, chicken casseroles, sweet potato pie and peach ice cream. Tex-Mex, Greek and Cajun flavors also make appearances.
