Older recipes include reflections about the recipes’ publication on magazine pages as many as 40 years ago. They give us a glimpse of how food has changed over the years. Take mushrooms, for instance. In our early years, canned mushrooms were considered a luxury, but by the mid-1980s, fresh button mushrooms were the rage. Now exotic mushroom varieties fill produce bins across the South.
