The price of cherries

I've got my wife's great-grandmother's hand-written recipe book from this era, and throughout whenever it mentions cherries, it specifies a certain value amount, such as five cents' worth. I could never figure out what that actually meant in a meaningful measurement. Now I know! It's a quarter-pound!

Familiar

My great aunt and uncle had a place like this except no Fountain Lunch! "Farmade" is a great name.
