When we were children, Mom said she helped her mother, Myrtle Schwartz Ives and her mother,
Anna Handel Schwartz cook. I remember that in the house in Morristown, Myrtle had an iron cookstore where she burned coal to get the oven hot enough to bake turkey for thanksgiving. Since Otis' family was from New England, the menus were diverse. Always pumkin and mince pie, but the mashed potatoes with rootabaga were European. Mom said that Myrtle learned to cook spaghetti sauce from her Italian neighbors when they lived in Long Island City, NY. She always added raisins like the Sicilians to add sweetness and depth and cut the edge from the tomatoes. I recall that Mom cooked German dishes learned
to cook from Anna, particularly her dumplings and matzoh ball soup.

While I learned this from Mom, usually by phone, I don't think she ever wrote them down. When she started to work outside the home, she would call and ask us to do prep...peel potatoes, make the sauce and she would finish up when she got home, often eating something else...usually egg sandwhich later.
