Mayo's Duck Farm, Orleans, MA Cape Cod Recipes

Tomorrow is the anniversary of my mother's death.  When she passed away, I just browsed and browsed through her recipes.  She was a wonderful mother and a true from scratch cook and baker.  She amassed many recipes and these are from Mayo's Duck Farm, which was in Orleans, MA on the way to Nauset and a real old-fashioned slow food community unto itself.  There's a great write up in the wicked local section of the paper on Mayo’s Farm Kitchen, a lunch spot, bakery and catering, recalling Old Orleans. 

I have in my own Treasured Recipes cookbook, a recipe from there, acquired by my Mom.  My aunt Jo-Jo and her were great at getting the recipes from restaurants and the locals.  Ah, that was back in THE day!

Here are recipes for Lemon Meringue Pie and Applesauce Squares:  Please let us know if you enjoy these old-fashioned recipes.  Vaya con Dios.
