Some of my favorites include; black pumpernickel bread, fresh chorizo sausage; and the homemade chili sauce (extra tomatoes in summer?-- try this recipe). There's even a recipe for tofu in it! (And pastrami, too!) If you can find it, get it. You won't be disapointed!
You can find everything you ever loved to buy at German or Italian delicatessens - the sauerkraut, the pickles, the bagels, the Italian sweet sausage, the Italian spicy sausage, the stuffed peppers, EVERYTHING I love. The first time I found the old version in the Army Post library, I photocopied half the book and enjoyed all the great stuff I wasn't able to buy in a foreign country. The authors say they love to make all these things from scratch (even homemade ketchup!) because they don't want their families to have all the food additives in commercially prepared foods. Frankly, I'm not so squeamish -- but I LOVE the food - think corned beef and real, smoked pastrami and cracked olives. The newer version uses blenders, heavy-duty mixers, home smokers, microwave ovens, no matter what you use, recipes are easy to follow, ingredients are not usually hard to find. Enjoy!
I don't know of another book that covers all these things and...graham crackers, deviled ham, chutney. Make it all! Just about my favorite cookbook and now I've found it!!
