A couple of years ago, I was borrowing eggs from an elderly neighbor. When she opened her fridge to get the eggs I noticed two old (vintage, if you will) boxes nuzzled in the lower shelve of the door. "What are those?" I asked her, while proceeding to get a closer look at these "ancient" boxes. And there I was...staring at two old Manischewitz boxes. One of the boxes was labeled potato pancake mix, and the other "Some Stuff". No bar-codes or kosher symbols were present on either box, leading me to assume that these boxes dated back to the 1960’s-1970, (and my money is on the 60's). I couldn't get over the fact that my neighbor had gone through replacing her refrigerator a couple of times since the 1960's, and each time she did- this stuff (as it's actually called) seemed to make it into the new fridge. I asked her if I could have the boxes. Who wouldn't want a piece of Jewish Food History? and she happily complied, ridding herself of the latke mix and "Stuff" she had been holding onto for decades. Now, I am happy to say that these 50 something year old boxes sit on my cookbook shelf, or as I like to call: my new Jewish food history museum.
