Dear Dead Days

Australian Women's Weekly Cookery for Parties, not dated but apparently from the late 40's.

I particularly like this, from their Celebration Dinner for 12;
CHILLI SAUCE
Twelve medium-sized ripe tomatoes, 3 medium onions, 1 green pepper, salt to taste, 1 teaspoon cloves, 1 teaspoon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 1 teaspoon cinnamon,1 1/2 cups vinegar, 1 cup sugar.
Pel tomatoes and put on to boil. Peel and chop onions and green pepper. Add to the boiling tomatoes. Boil until quite thick, watching closely that it does not burn. Add spices, which have been tied in cheesecloth bag. When thick, add vinegar and sugar. Cook 5 minutes. Strain. Serve in hot sauce boat.

You will have noticed, if you're the cooks I take you for, that that Chilli Sauce recipe doesn't contain any actual chili. Or pepper.
I must make some up.

I may not, however, get around to the Iced Coffee; two quarts milk (a bit under 2 litres), 6 level tablespoons pure coffee, salt to taste. Very latte.
