One of our readers sent in pictures of a teacup and saucer marked RS Prussia. "I was reading about RS Prussia marks, and wondered if anyone could verify that this mark is real and not a fake. It's my favorite set, and will be even if it's not real, but I'm just curious. I love the square pedestal base! The mark is on the cup only. Thanks!"

8. A Vintage Recipe

Be sure to check out our vintage recipe archive online at: http://www.tias.com/newsletter/topics/A%20Vintage%20Recipe.html Over 1200 wonderful vintage recipes are listed.

Last week, Jim H sent in this request:
"Many years ago the Sunset Magazine had a very good recipe for a Hot Fudge Topping..."

Carol T sent this:
Sunset Magazine recipe for Hot Fudge Topping.

1 cup heavy cream
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup Dutch-process unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate (about 60% cacao), finely chopped
4 ounces unsweetened chocolate, finely chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Mix cream, sugar, cocoa, corn syrup, and salt in a medium saucepan.
Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and cook just until sugar has completely
dissolved, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat.

2. Add chocolates and vanilla and stir until chocolate is melted and sauce is
completely smooth. If you have any lumps, gently press and smear them against
the bottom of the pan with a spatula as you stir.

Merlene H sent this:
Jim H asked for a recipe for Hot Fudge Topping that reminded me of this one. It's from a can of Carnation Evaporated Milk, really good and easy. You could add Amaretto. Hope this helps. Merlene

Chocolate Fudge Sauce

1 1/2 c (12 oz can) Carnation Evaporated Milk
2 c (12 oz pkg) Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chips
2 t vanilla extract

Combine evaporated milk and chips, microwave a minute
and a half. Stir and continue in microwave 30 seconds
at a time until smooth. Add vanilla. Store in frig.

*Note - the recipes are submitted by fellow Collectors Newsletter readers and are not checked for accuracy or tested by the TIAS staff. Keep in mind that many of these recipes were created at a time when there were no worries about such things as raw eggs, for example - so modern kitchen safety should prevail.
--------------------

9. As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe.

We don't have any special requests this week. Does anyone have a favorite fall vintage recipe they'd like to share?

If you have a vintage recipe request send it to recipes@tias.com and we might just publish it here.
