Need Help Finding a Long Lost Recipe...

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 

Years ago, maybe early to mid seventies, I had bought a new fangled contraption called a SALAD SHOOTER. 

It came with a recipe booklet that had the most fantastic Carrot Cake recipe I have ever had in my lifetime.  Moist, dense cake, loads of carrots, the best!! 

Over these many years and having moved house more than several times,

I have lost that booklet and I was hoping that maybe someone out there in Cheftalk.com land had that same experience and still have their recipe. 

I wrote to Presto and asked if they still had it on their files, NOPE!  She suggested th Cook's Illustrated recipe for Carrot Cake.  It wasn't the same.

HELP!

Now you have me so curious, I'm looking for it also, and will certainly advise if I find it in any of the second-hand

shops - I'm in Ontario, Canada, not even sure if they sold them here, but most likely they did!

This is not quite the topic, but what on earth is a salad shooter? 

"Siduri said, 'Gilgamesh, where are you roaming? You will never find the eternal life that you seek...Savour your food, make each of your days a delight, ... let music and dancing fill your house, love the child who holds you by the hand and give your wife pleasure in your embrace.'"

I no longer have that beloved Salad Shooter, I can't seem to recall what happened to it...

But Siduri made me think back and I went to the Offical Presto website.  My memory fails me!  Presto introduced the Salad Shooter in 1988, I was think it was the mid 70's!!
