Recipes for Old Style Breads and Cottage Cheese
These recipes are from my collection of early American ladies
housekeeping remedies and recipes, some of the recipes are rarities
dating back over a hundred years ago to the late 1800's.
They are printed in the same spelling used as passed down
through the years to preserve the Old Style Grace of The Ladies of the Era.
Old Style Cooking Tips
If you've never cooked in the old fashion way of
"a pinch here and a spoon there"
you may have to experiment with what a "teacupful"
would be, and a "saltspoon" amount is
and its what it says it is.
Remember they cooked on wood stoves back then
in the olden days so you'll have to adjust your modern stove
to low, med or high for slow or fast cooking directions and
keep an eye on it until done to perfection.
Nunn's Puff or Nun's Farts
Nunn's Puff or Farts as it was fondly called, is a very old recipe according to Wiki and is in a 1800's cook book I have. They are a french dessert pastry.
Boil 1 pint of Milk with half a pound of Butter.
Stir them into three-quarters of a pound of Flour
and let them cool.
Then add nine Eggs, yolks
and whites to be beaten separately,
and whites to be added last.
Fill cups or tins half full and bake.
Sprinkle with white sugar while hot.
Very nice with Tea.
1 pint Sweet Milk
2 teacups sifted Corn Meal
3 Eggs, beaten separately
1 teacup Boiled Rice
Half of teacup melted Butter
Half of teaspoonful Salt
Bake in a very hot oven,
using buttered iron muffin molds.
Cottage Cheese Ingredients
- Boiling Water
When tea kettle boils, pour the water into a pan
of Loppered Milk.
It will Curn at once.
Stir it and turn it into a colander, pour a little
cold water over it,
salt it, and break it up.
A better way is to put equal parts of Buttermilk
and thick Milk in a kettle, over a fire, heat it almost boiling
hot, pour into a linen bag and let it drain till next day.
Then take it out, salt it,
put it in a little cream or butter,
as it may be thick or not and make it up
into little balls
the size of an orange.
