in LIFE magazine in 1958

cranberry_souffle_salad_LIFE_1958_post

As I have mentioned before, my mother worked at Norway’s largest producer of mayonnaise most of her working life, so I grew up on the stuff. And as a Norwegian I also have a great love of cranberries, almost all of us do.

But mixing the two, well, I’m not all that sure really. But that’s just me. What ever blows your skirt up visitor, go for it if it tickles you fancy- Ted 😉

In context:
Evaporated milk was a popular product before refrigerators were common in homes, but is now a niche product mainly used in baking and other recipes.

Pet, Inc., was an American company that was the first to commercially produce evaporated milk as a shelf-stable consumer product and later became a multi-brand food products conglomerate. Its signature product, PET Evaporated Milk, is now a product of The J.M. Smucker Company.

PET Dairy is a regional brand of fresh and processed dairy products in the Southeastern United States made by the Land-O-Sundivision of Dean Foods. Many of the remaining brands once owned by Pet, Inc. are currently part of General Mills.
