Subject: Clabber ad infinitum
When I was growing up in the eastern part of Oklahoma, on a ranch-farm
in or near Muskogee, Oklahoma, "clabbered milk" was a quite common expression.
Clabbered milk was supposed to help make extra good biscuits. Further,
there was a brand of baking powder called "Clabber Girl Baking Powder,"
advertised, as I dimly recall. on signs sporting a young woman in a bonnet,
a long farm dress, and maybe(?) an apron. CLABBER GIRL BAKING POWDER. I
am attempting to run down not the girl but a patent which might reveal the
company's name. It could jus as simply be Clabber Girl Baking Powder Co.
