Let’s get this New Year started!
2020 was full of home cooking in our household and I’ve been running through the cookbooks to try and keep things fresh. Here’s today’s menu suggestion from “A Calendar of Dinners” by Marion Harris, c. 1916. The cookbook is actually a promotional compilation from Crisco (more on that in a later post). For now, how about some Palestine Soup, Jugged hare, Red Currant Jelly, Brussles Sprouts, Potato Puffs, Endive Salad, Cheese Fingers, and Vanilla Souffle?
The beauty of this particular recipe is that it walks you through how to prepare your hare.
As the owner of a domesticated rabbit who was just recently found nibbling on one of my antique cookbooks, I recited said instructions aloud in an admonishing tone with the hopes of redirecting future inclinations towards deviant nibbling activities.
More to come, folks!
