Description: In 1978, Norma Jean and Carole Darden researched and recorded their rich family lore that they gathered for seven years. They visitedrelatives in Alabama, North Carolina, Ohio, and Virginia, collecting traditional recipes, rare photographs, family health and beauty secrets,and recollections of special family celebrations and rituals.Beginning with their grandfather, Charles Henry Darden, who was born a slave and settled at sixteen with his wife in Wilson, NorthCarolina and eventually raising thirteen children, they describe in vivid detail his adventures and misadventures - including Papa Garden'swine-making secrets for the strawberrry wine he sold for five cents a glass in his general store.Other featured members of their family are Aunt Lil of Petersburg, Virginia, an octogenarian who couldn't remember cooking recipes butremembered her beauty cream "recipes," and their ninety-four year old Aunt Maude in Opelika, Alabama, who reminisced about GeorgeWashington Carver's favorite peanut butter ice cream.There are herbal cures, natural beauty tips, photographs, and memories, but the central focus is on food simply because dining andcelebrating events in a family style are today as they have always been, an important element of the black family tradition.
