Basic French Dressing

While reading through this ad I got to wondering why Heinz didn't just make and market their own salad dressing. A quick search of the web for “Heinz salad dressing” brought up a whole bunch of results for Heinz Salad Cream, which I had never heard of before. A visit to the Heinz website tells us “Heinz® Salad Cream was the first brand developed exclusively for the U.K. market. When first created in Heinz’ Harlesden (London) kitchens in 1914 much of the preparation was done by hand. Salad Cream jars were hand-packed in straw-lined barrels- 12 dozen in each. The work schedule was 180 dozen jars a day- with a halfpenny a dozen bonus if our loyal, skilled workforce could beat the target.” Apparently the cream is finally slowly making its way to the States. On the flip side of the ad we have a snippet of a story about two feuding sisters.
