Vintage Recipe Thursday is meant to preserve your own original vintage family recipes, or out-of-print, copyright-free recipes from old cookbooks, magazines, newspapers or postcards. You're invited! Get the details by clicking to the Vintage Recipe Thursday Homepage. I post recipes from the Household Searchlight Recipe Book, first published in 1931. My 16th printing is from 1943. What will you post?

Here's a vintage dessert which you can make any time of the year since it uses dried pears and bananas are available year round.  Compotes are so delicious, and this recipe is ready so quickly.
