‘One Hundred Years of Good Cooking’

‘One Hundred Years of Good Cooking’

    A small group of worshippers organized Unity Baptist Church in 1913. Throughout the church’s 103-year history, countless home-cooked dishes have been served under its roof, and recipes shared.
    In observance of its 100th anniversary, Unity Baptist Church published a cookbook, “One Hundred Years of Good Cooking.” Many of the recipes have been passed from one generation to the next and now adapted to modern cooking techniques and tastes.
    Recipes from some of the original church families include Fried Field Corn, Sesame Shrimp Salad, Cracklin Corn Bread, Apple Pound Cake and Lemon Ice Box Pie.
    In the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day, we share a few recipes here that call for green ingredients (and that sound delicious).
    The church uses proceeds from cookbook sales to purchase equipment for its playground and kitchen.
    The spiral-bound softcover cookbook includes 208 pages of recipes, photographs and church history. Price is $15. To order, send check to Susan Turner, 1566 Bradley Road, Leakesville, MS 39451.
