Our Grandmothers were experts at stretching their grocery dollars to feed large families! At times, it was necessary for them to be very creative cooks - making do with what they had on hand or what was readily available.

Take a step back in time learn how Grandma did it - much of her knowledge can be applied to our modern households!

Pineapple Salad Recipe

I remember my Aunt making this for family dinners.  This recipe has the "old fashioned" cooked dressing.

1 can pineapple
1 egg
1 tablespoon cornstarch
4 bananas
1/2 cup sugar
10 marshmallows
Nut meats

Drain juice from pineapple and place on stove in saucepan.  Make a thickening of the egg yolk, cornstarch and sugar and add to the juice.  Cook until thick.  Remove from stove and add the marshmallows.  Beat the egg white and fold in.  Pour this mixture over the sliced pineapple and bananas.  Add a few nuts if desired.
