You all saw Aunt Nettie in her later years when I shared her recipe for Orange Slice Nut Cookies. This recipe is a holiday favorite of old for Home Made Mince Meat. I can’t say that I like mince meat but many people did and still do. My Aunt Nettie in this picture was when she was finishing teaching school and getting ready to begin to teach young children. Such a beautiful young woman. She was raised in Oklahoma during the depression and saw her family go from owning a mining store to being sharecropper on a cotton farm. Times were tough back then but the stories were vast. I hope you enjoy learning about her and seeing her recipes.
