One man’s trash is another’s ‘Magic of Florida Celery’​

Collecting vintage recipe pamphlets is a hobby of mine and provides me with inspiration for this column. It seems as if the warm weather is taking some time to welcome yard sale season, causing me to be behind in my never-ending search for these gems of culinary literature.

During the winter months, I get my “fix” scouting eBay and visiting used book and thrift stores. The photography and food styling of years past are as interesting as the recipes within these publications.

When warmer weather finally arrives, we begin to change our eating habits from hot soups and hearty food to salads and lighter fare. I thought “The Magic of Florida Celery,” published by the Florida Celery Exchange, a pamphlet I purchased online during the winter, was timely.
