The following 2 recipes were printed in a book sold at the Relief Sale in 1973 and with great pride we republish them here exactly as printed.

Relief Sale Tea Balls
Mix on the beater

2 eggs,
1 cup brwn sugar,
1 cup farmer's cream,
1 cup buttermilk,
1 tsp. soda,
1/4 tsp. nutmeg,
1/2 tsp orange flavor.

Add and stir only enough to blend: 3 cups all-purpose flour, 1 tsp. baking powder, 1 tsp. salt.

Drop by spoonfuls into fat 350o until light brown.
Best results are when cream and buttermilk are unpasteurized.
