|Aunt Jenny is awesome but where can I find "emergency flour"?|

as baking is especially critical with emergency flour."
Update - Emergency Flour and Spry - After preparing this post we did a little extra research on the WWW and discovered this: Emergency Flour was mandated by the Federal Government for a couple of years around the end of WWII. Apparently there was a shortage of regular flour at the time and by adding some extra ingredients they could make "regular" flour go further. Spry was like Crisco ... a shortening. In some forums on cooking history old timers say they often used butter or margarine instead of shortening in the recipes like we have in our post today.
