Out of the attic

Courtesy Hazel Zinn-Day

In going through her cousin Brad Nicholas’ collection of their grandmother Zinn’s recipes recently, Rock Mills resident Hazel Zinn-Day came across a book of “Rare Rappahannock Recipes” originally compiled by the Woman’s Missionary Society of Woodville Baptist Church” in 1929, and updated by the missionary societies of the Woodville and Mt. Lebanon Baptist churches in 1950. Zinn-Day sent us a page of apple recipes, still perfectly delectable and, she adds, “the ladies’ names on the recipes go way back in Rappahannock history! Some fantastic ladies.”
