I found this thermometer set earlier this week at an estate sale. I had bever seen anything like it. After looking more closely found the instructions and the missing pin. On the back of the instructions are recipes for yummy items such as banana fritters, buttermilk doughnuts, french fried potatoes, corn fritters, deep-fat fried chicken, deep-fat fried onion rings, deep-fat fried oysters or scallops and drop doughnuts. I believe this was way before the low-fat era. Hmmmm a doughnut sounds very good right now.
