Some of the things I collect are vintage cookbooks and cookbooklets like you still sometimes see while standing in line at the grocery store. In one of them, I found this…
This is a photo of 60 or so Heinz products found in The Heinz Salad Book. It does not give the year it was printed. According to a couple of online sources, Heinz changed the name of Beefsteak Sauce to 57 Sauce in 1940, so this was probably printed before that. Other sources give the year of the change as 1913, so don’t quote me on any of this. Stupid Internet.
Did you know the Heinz “57” never really stood for anything?
Pepper pot soup is called pepper pot soup because it sounds better than beef tripe soup.
As for mock turtle soup, does calf heads and organ meat soup sound any better?
You never fail to amuse and inspire!
