This recipe was one of Henry Ford's favorite snacks. The recipe was found
in Cooking For Henry, a cookbook by Henry Ford's personal party chef, Jan
Willemse. In 1934, Mr. Ford requested Willemse experiment in cooking with
soybeans, and the cookbook has an entire chapter dedicated to soybean

Ford was a strong supporter of soybeans and saw the possibility for the
use of soybeans in food, milk, ice cream, paint, plastics, and many
other things before 1930. In Ford's fast-growing automobile industry,
and since, the soybean played a large part in the manufacturing of
commercial products.
