Alton : Sesquicentennial Cook Book

The Genealogy & Local History Library possesses many cookbooks compiled locally. All are housed in the Illinois Room, and I plan to periodically feature a recipe from one of these cookbooks. Up first: Fireman’s Slaw, p. 44 of Alton: Sesquicentennial Cook Book, published in 1987. This cookbook can be perused in the Genealogy & Local History Library, call number IR 641.5 ALT, and is also available to check out at the Hayner downtown library or Alton Square library, call number 641.5 CIT.

Since the slaw recipe mentions that it is especially good with fish and chips, I will also share another entry from this cookbook: Mississippi River Fish.
