Little Cookbooks: The Alan and Shirley Brocker Sliker Culinary Collection

Welch Ways


The front cover features an illustration of two ladies drinking Welch's grape juice in front of a long paned window. The hostess is wearing a long white dress with an orange and black sash around her waist. The guest wears a black hat, white blouse, and black skirt. Her black and green jacket lies on the back of the red cushioned dining chair. The title "Welch Ways' is written in black lettering above the illustration. At the bottom, the phrase "Marion Harland's Ninety-Nine Selected Recipes" is also stated in black lettering. The back cover begins with a drawing of Welch's grape juice in a large white ice chest in front of a blue and white wainscoting. Underneath the drawing, the phrase "Keep a Supply of Welch's in your Ice Chest" is written in black lettering. The inside pages begin with a typed introduction signed by Marion Harland and continue with various recipes that utilize a Welch's product in them. All recipes fall under the categories of beverages, desserts, frozen desserts, something different, and salads. They are all written in paragraph form containing detailed directions on how to prepare the dish. The back end page entails four serviceable sizes of Welch's grape juice followed by a few paragraphs describing different attributes about the product. At the bottom, the company name and address are stated in black lettering.
