I can't believe someone actually parted with that (the book, not the recipe). It's worth keeping just for the cover.

I can't believe it either! The book looks interesting and so do the squash pickles. I'll make the recipe and trade you a jar for the book when you're finished.

Hmm...

I love pickles, but HATE squash.

It's a shame, really. They are quite cheap and plentiful around here.

What a miraculous find. Thanks. But I have to echo bwebster -- can we see the whole salacious cover, please?
