The all-time favorite Ruralite cookbook is again available for purchase! It is Ruralite's original reader recipe collection — a 133-page cookbook that includes an index by category. The cookbook was compiled from readers' recipes that appeared in the magazine in the early 1960s to the late 1970s, and was edited by Hazel Hake Alderman, whose husband, Hank, founded Ruralite Services in 1954.
The last printing was in 1980. However, the requests for this cookbook have not diminished. "Favorite Recipes from Ruralite Readers" includes categories such as breads, dairy products, dumplings and noodles, relishes, pies and more.
