    I knew somebody was going to ask me that. Oleo is margarine. that is a brand name from my mama's era and we've just always called it that.

    Boy, do I feel old now. It is the name commonly used for oleomargarine.

    The first oleo (margarine) on the market came in a plastic bag and was white creamy stuff that had a color capsule in it. (Yes, a liquid-filled pill.) You squeezed it until the capsule broke and leaked it's orange-colored contents, then massaged the whole bag until it became a uniform butter color, then you cut the bag and squeezed the stuff into a container with a lid and refrigerated it. It would firm up, then you used it just like you use - well, margarine. It was my job as a kid when mom came home from the store. My dad wouldn't eat it. It was real butter for him!

    Somebody PLEASE tell me I'm not the only 71-year old who remembers this!

    My mom tried it once, my dad and brother said this is horrible (brother was three) and my brother to this day won't touch margerine. My grandparents were farmers, and sold milk to a dairy. Butter was and is always in the 'icebox!' Does that make you feel better Carol's Quilts?

    I remember doing the same as Carol. It tasted terrible but was what my parents could afford. Butter was a rare treat.
    Margarine now tastes like real butter and I use both.

    I also use to call fabric "material" until someone questioned how old I was. lol Now it is fabric.

    Nope, you are not the only 71 year old that remembers this. Count me in. My siblings and I used to hope we would be the one picked to break the golden egg and mix it into the white stuff that looked like lard. Recently told my grandchildren about this and they were all in agreement that they had never heard of this before.

    I am a 73 yr. old that vividly remembers. I use to LOVE to break that little orange tablet and massage the thing into the white margarine. It has always been a pleasant memory......Oh, what our kids have missed out on....:O)

    Thanks, everyone, I DO feel better now! And you're all right - it did taste pretty awful, but it's funny - I don't remember mom's food tasting awful, it was always good. I don't get that part!

    I used to be a "material" girl, too - "fabric " was kind of high 'falutin. Guess we've all come a long way!

    Your are not the only one. I've told my children about that since they were small. I use to 'help' my grandmother mix this when she would get it. I loved to watch it turn yellow. Oh, those were the days. LOL I am 72.

    LOL ... knew someone would ask that too ! I'm old enough to remember Oleo ... many of my grandmas & my mom's recipes refer to using oleo (they used real butter too) My girls asked the same thing not long ago, when we made some family recipes ... I also heard "Eww, who puts Buttermilk in a recipe, Gross!" and "What's Carnation milk? / What is Milnot?" :roll:

    Ha ha! I forgot all about calling it material. Don't know when I switched to using "fabric." Don't remember mixing the color into margarine, but my mom told me about doing it, so I knew what "Oleo" meant. Good times! :thumbup:

    Well I'm 63 years old and I remember my folks buying oleo. They would buy it in Wisconsin as it wasn't sold in Minnesota at that time Minnesota was a diary State only real butter was sold.

    I still say material. When I'm writing on this board, I'll start to say material and then change it to fabric. When I'm talking to my mom, I think all she knows is "material". This brings back sweet memories and tells my age, too. :lol: :lol:

    My MIL called whole milk "sweet milk" and a lot of the old cookbooks from the south use that term. I had never heard that until I married. My grandfather raised pigs and every fall he butchered a pig and we always got a 5 gal tin of lard and that's all I knew to cook with until I was in high school when mom finally broke down and bought some crisco because the lard had become too rancid. Memories!!!!

    I remember "oleo" but I don't remember the one in the plastic bag and the capsule. I'll be 71 this summer.
