Franciscan Centennial Cookbook, Been A Long Time A'Simmering
It was compiled by the Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls, Minnesota. Spiral bound soft cover book with pictorial cover consists of 253 pages and is in very lightly used condition. The only thing I found is that the front cover has some sun fading to the top edge of the cover----see pic.
There is a short history of the Franciscans which began in Little Falls in 1891. The Franciscan Sisters wasted no time in becoming established. With donations from Ashley C. Morrill and the Little Falls Lumber Company a temporary shelter was built on their present site. Soje sisters traveled across the country begging for money, equipment and supplies. Others attended institutions where they studied surgical nursing, pharmacy, dietetics and teacher training. By the fall of 1891 the Sisters moved into a three story multipurpose building. This building still stands and is called Hurrle Hall. When the building was first built, it contained St. Gabriel's Hospital, a home for the elderly, an orphanage and a high school, as well as a convent for the Sisters. The chapter dividers are photographs of the Franciscans' history. Each recipe tried and true, attributed to the contributor and you know only the very best were selected.
