    I was thrilled when I was checking out something on and found that the old Purity Cookbook has been reprinted. This was the first cookbook I ever had of my own. It has some of my all-time favourites in it. The new one is exactly the same as the old one with a forward by Jean Pare. There is also a warning that the recipes may not turn out the same with today's new technology. The original had a wire binding and all the best used recipes have fallen out after 38 years. <G> The new one has no wire binding, just the usual softcover binding. I always liked the fact that the different sections gives the meaning of the cooking terms. You do have to bear in mind that the recipes need to be updated as to fat, cholesterol and salt content. Amazon Shipped it in 2 days. It is also quite inexpensive for a cookbook, $ 13.56 CDN plus shipping and GST. I really love this book. I hope those of you who buy it will too.

    The 1967 was a revised copy as were the ones previously. This new one has the same recipes as 1967.

    I just ordered it! I had the original 1967 one and had it stored at my mom's with all my other books. This summer when I went to ship all my stuff over, for some reason that one was missing! (I suspect one of my kids 'borrowed' it icon_lol.gif ).

    Wow, that is familiar. Kids, eh. I really credit this book for my cooking skills today, good easy to follow recipes. One of my favourite recipes is the one for corn fritters. Deep fried and not too healthy, but they taste soooo good. icon_biggrin.gif

    Thank you soooo much. I went out on Friday and bought a deep fryer and made the fritters. They were so good.

    icon_biggrin.gif Hi Brenda, this is the first cookbook I purchased many years ago! I used it so much it fell apart, a couple of years ago I found one at the Goodwill store and bought it! Sweet memories!!

    Hi Elly.

    It was my first cook book as well. I still have the original. It is more than 40 years old and the pages are all falling out. It has a wire binding that was too strong for the well used pages. Some have become lost. I do love it.

    I also have an original, and the price sticker is still on the cover $0.79 I cant remember when I bought it has to be in the last 45 years. There is no publisher, date, copyright pages anywhere in it...just a forward by Anna Lee Beattand Maple Leaf Mills Limited on the back cover.

    Also I was just looking thru it, I found the recipe that I have been looking for, for the past 10 years....and there it was....I had it all along.

    I love the 1967 Purity Cookbook! If it weren't for stealing that book from my mom years ago I doubt I would have ever learned to cook. Mine has been used so often the wire coil is completely missing and so are some of the recipes. It is my secret ingredient! I was very excited to learn about the new one but I haven't gotten around to buying one yet.
