MICKLER, Ernest Matthew. White Trash Cooking.
(Highlands, N.C.): Jargon Society, 1986. First edition. Spiral bound square quarto. First printing of this cult cookery book that has been reprinted numerous times. The volume contains more than 200 recipes collected from West Virginia to Key West showcasing the time-honored cooking and hospitality traditions of the white trash way. Includes delicacies like Tutti’s Fancy Fruited Porkettes, Mock-Cooter Soup, and Oven-Baked Possum; stalwart sides like Bette’s Sister-in-Law’s Deep-Fried Eggplant and Cracklin’ Corn Pone; waste-not leftover fare like Four-Can Deep Tuna Pie and Day-Old Fried Catfish; and desserts with a heavy dash of Dixie, like Irma Lee Stratton’s Don’t-Miss Chocolate Dump Cake and Charlotte’s Mother’s Apple Charlotte. Illustrated with a 32-page colour photograph section. A very good copy in glossy wrappers, previous owner’s name / date on front endpaper. Scarce in this first printing.
