Paper bag cookery?
“Cooking with paper bags. Simply place your Roast, your Fowl, your Pudding etc., into the Cookery Bag; seal it–place it into the pan–remove from the oven when the time has expired–that’s all. no shrinkage,– no loss of flavor–no smell of cooking–no pans to wash. Genuine Cookery Bags are odorless, tasteless, moisture-proof, germ-proof. We sell them in 25 cent packets containing from 15 to 60 bags of either straight or assorted sizes.”—display ad, The MacKinnon Company, 40 Sussex Ave., Morristown, Daily Record, November 22, 1911 (p. 1)
