We may live without conscience, and live without heart; 

We may live without friends; we may live without books; 

But civilized man cannot live without cooks. 

He may live without books, — what is knowledge but grieving-? 

He may live without hope, — what is hope but deceiving? 

He may live without love, — what is passion but pining?

IRules for flDaftino 3Breao. 

Twice as much flour as wetting- is a good rule to follow, to avoid 
having the bread too stiff. By this rule, beat with a spoon for 20 
minutes, and let stand over night. In the morning add as little flour as 
possible to mold into loaves. 

For 4 large loaves, take 3 pints of liquid, (5 fresh milk and J potato 
water); in warm weather \ cake of yeast, and 3 quarts of flour, 1 table- 
spoon sugar, same of butter or lard, and salt. 

In cold weather more yeast is required. 

Bread is better when raised slowly. 

Bread should never fall, but be mixed before reaching this stage. 

Before putting into the oven, cut across the top 3 times; for a 
rich brown crust nothing equals melted butter, for brushing. The oven 
must be hot when the bread is put in, and after it is well browned a 
more moderate oven will do. Bake bread from J to 1 hour, according 
to size of loaf, and always in separate pans. 

POTATO YEAST.— Mrs. Geo. M. Dodge. 

Peel and grate 3 medium sized raw potatoes; pour 1 quart of 
boiling water over them, stirring well all the time. Let it stand on the 
back of the stove, and add 1 tablespoon sugar, and a little salt. 
"When luke-warm, add J a cup of baker's yeast or one cake of 
compressed yeast dissolved in £ cup water. Let it stand in a warm 
place in open stone jar until it ferments. Then cover and set away in 
a cool place, and it is ready for use. This yeast will keep 2 or 3 weeks 
in cool weather. 


In 2 quarts of water let 2 ounces of hops boil for \ hour; strain the 
liquid, and let it stand in a wide earthenware bowl. When luke-warm 
add a small quantity of salt — say j handful — and \ pound of sugar. 
Take some of the liquor, and well mix up in it J pound of the best flour, 
beating this up thoroughly in the whole afterwards. The next day but 
one, put in 1\ pounds of boiled and mashed potatoes; let it stand one 
more day, after which it may be bottled for use. It should be kept near 
the fire while making, so as to keep it about the temperature of new 
milk; and it should also be frequently stirred during the process of 
making. When bottled, it should be kept in a cool place. 



\ cake of compressed yeast; 2 medium sized potatoes, with water in 
which they were boiled, about 1 quart; 1 tablespoon white sugar; 1 
tablespoon shortening. Mix the above at night in as much flour as is 
inquired to make a stiff dough; cover and let stand until morning. 
Knead well at night, "and also in the morning. Let it rise again in 
morning, before putting in pans. The water for bread, including potato 
water, should be 1 quart. The above will make 3 nice sized loaves. 

BREWERS' YEAST BREAD.— Mrs. W. J. Wickman. 

Take 1 quart brewers' yeast, put it in a pitcher and allow it to 
settle; pour off all but the sediment and add 1 quart of water, and 
allow it to settle again. Pour off the top again, and re-cover with 
another 1 quart of water, and allow it to settle. Again pour off the water 
and save the settlings. Into this put a small amount of sugar, about 
1 tablespoonful, or to taste; salt to taste, and 1 or li pints of water at 
blood heat. Stir this into the middle of about 2 quarts of flour. Mold 
well and allow to rise 1 or 1J hours; when light, mold into pans and 
bake 1 hour. . 

RYE BREAD.-1/cs. McMahon.

of salt, 1 teacup of white flour, f of a cake of yeast in winter and h in

Ph. Voeel, 


IRules tor Stock. 

Put meat to cook in cold water; simmer slowly not less than 5 hours, 
skimming occasionally. 

A piece of liver is an addition ; or cooked meat or cooked bones will 
give the rich brown color without the use of burnt sugar. 

Melt 1 cup white sugar in a saucepan till it is dark; add slowly 1 cup 
of cold water, stirring briskly, and boil till it thickens. Keep in large 
mouthed bottle. 


When hot add the well-beaten white of an egg, and as the soup boils 
up, after stirring in the egg, skim well. 

All milk soups are improved by the addition of cream. 
BOUILLON.— Mrs L. A. Lancel 

Take from 4 to 5 pounds of beef, cover with cold water, add salt. 
When boiled, skim and add h teaspoon of black pepper, 2 carrots, 2; 
turnips, 2 leeks, celery and parsley; boil from 4 to 5 hours, strain, and 
set aside. When to be used, roast one good sized onion dry, in the- 
oven; stick whole cloves in it; put in the stock and boil 10 minutes. If 
liked, add half a glass of sherry. 


Chop fine £ cup of marrow good and fresh, and rub with it 1 cup of 
flour and a saltspoon of salt. Wet with sufficient cold water to make- 
like pastry, and roll into tiny balls like small marbles. Drop into boiling 
soup, boil 15 to 20 minutes, and serve. 

OXTAIL SOUP.— Mrs. W Fraser. 

Chop an oxtail in slices and fry a nice brown in butter. Add 3 
quarts water, 1 carrot, a small piece turnip, 1 onion, 1 stick of celery. 
and a little salt and pepper. Let simmer 5 hours, strain' through 
colander, add a little rice, and leave in a few pieces of the oxtail. Let. 
simmer until rice is done, then serve. 

OXTAIL SOUP.— Miss H. Pregge. 

Separate the joints of 2 oxtails; put them into a frying pan with 
a, little butter and fry them nice and brown: add 1 onion and 1 carrot 



and fry brown also. Then put all into a soup kettle with about 3 quarts 
of water, let it simmer slowly, add a few cloves and a blade of mace r 
also a little barley, and cook well. If desired add a little sherry wine 
just before sending to the table. 

CREAM OF BARLEY SOUP.— Mrs. E. W. Newhall. 

lj pints strong chicken broth or stock, \ cup barley, 1 cup cream, 
yolks of 4 eggs; flavor with celery, lemon or onion. Wash the barley 
thoroughly, and cook slowly until soft enough to rub through a sieve. 
Put it into the strained chicken broth, and cook half an hour. Then 
add the yolks of 4 eggs, well beaten. Be sure and pour the broth on to 
the eggs, not the eggs into the broth. Lastly add one cup of cream. 
Do not boil after the cream is added. If too thick, add a little hot milk 
to the right consistency, and salt to taste. 

CREAM OF CELERY SOUP.— Mrs. W. F. C. Hasson. 

This receipt is also good for cauliflower, potato, or asparagus. If 
you have roast beef bones left from the day before, break them up and 
put on to boil with soup greens and a head of celery. (If you have no 
bones, and do not wish to buy fresh soup meat, water alone will do, but 
it will not be as savory. ) Add some young onions, 5 or 6, a tablespoon 
•of butter, and some flour dissolved in water until smooth, and when 
the soup is boiling add the flour, salt, pepper, a little mace, and the 
top slice of a lime for a few minutes only, as it will make the soup bitter 
if left longer. For potato soup, leave out the mace and lime, but 
add a pinch of allspice instead. After the celery is quite soft, 
strain it through a fine sieve, add a gill of cream thinned out in as much 
milk, and the yolk of 1 egg, all beaten and allowed to come to a boil. 
Serve with fried bread cut in slices. For asparagus or cauliflower, 
<-ut off the heads and boil only the stalks before straining, as they have 
to be all mashed through the strainer; then put in the heads and flower, 
and let boil in the soup until tender. 

CREAM OF RICE SOUP.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

Fry 1 cup of rice in 1 tablespoon of butter until the rice turns white, 
then add 2 quarts of boiling milk, and cook slowly, stirring occasionally 
xmtll done. Pass through a fine wire sieve by mashing with a spoon. 
Season with salt and grated nutmeg; or instead of the nutmeg, cut up a 
small onion, and fry with the rice. Add 1 cup of cream just in time to 
warm but not boil, before serving. Lastly, add squares of bread fried 
in butter. Part stock or chicken broth may be used instead of all milk. 
If too thick, thin with milk to the light consistency. 

MOCK TURTLE SOUP.— Mrs. Herbert Kellogg. 

Have a good stock. Boil 1 quart of dark beans in water until 
tender, and mash through colander. Add a pinch of cloves, allspice 
and black peppers bruised and tied in a cloth; add the stock. Chop 3 
bard boiled eggs and place in the tureen; pour the soup over, and add i 
glass of sherry at the last. Salt to taste. 

SOUP. 17 

BLACK BEAN SOUP.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

2 cups of black beans boiled until tender. Mash through a colander, 
and add to 1 quart of rich stock; when hot, strain through a sieve; 
season with allspice, cloves, pepper and salt. Just before serving, add 
a cup of cream. This is far more delicate than where pork is used. 
Fry squares of bread in butter until they are a rich brown, and add last. 

WHITE BEAN SOUP.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

Put 1 cup of white pea beans to cook, and when tender mash 
through a colander and add milk until of the right consistency. Season 
with salt and pepper; and thyme fresh from the garden is preferable to 
the powdered. Tablespoon of butter and 1 cup of cream. Serve with 
squares of bread fried brown in butter. 

ONION SOUP (JOE TILDEN'S. )—Mrs. W. F. C. Hasson 

4 large onions cut up, 6 ounces butter, salt, cayenne, stock and milk, 
yolks of 4 eggs, J loaf of French bread cut in very thin slices and dried, 
and 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese. Slowly stew the onions 
in the butter for 1 hour, stirring frequently and being careful not to 
burn. Add salt, pepper, cayenne, and stock, and cook one hour; add 
J as much milk as stock. Have in the tureen the bread and cheese; 
beat up the eggs and mix with them a ladleful of the soup. Pour this 
on the bread, cover close for five minutes, let stand, add the rest of the 
soup, and serve at once. 

PUREE OF PEAS.— Mrs. McMahon. 

1 quart fresh peas, 2 cups boiling milk, 1 small minced onion, 2 
tablespoons butter rubbed up with 1 of flour; pepper and salt, handful 
of dry bread crumbs, 1 cup of boiling water. Put peas and onions over 
the fire with the hot water; boil half an hour; strain and rub through 
a sieve, working peas to a pulp. Meanwhile boil milk, butter, and flour, 
also pepper and salt; stir in bread crumbs, and one minute later the 
thickened milk. Serve at once. 

TOMATO BISQUE.— Mrs. Geo. Bunn. 

1 quart cooked tomatoes, 2 quarts sweet milk, 1 level teaspoon 
cornstarch, salt, butter, paprika or white pepper, 1 teaspoon soda. 
Strain the tomatoes and put on to heat; when boiling put in soda, then 
add the hot milk, sugar, salt, pepper, and butter. Cook the cornstarch 
in milk before adding to tomatoes, to prevent curdling. Some prefer a 
little sugar added. 1 cup of cream is an improvement. 

CLAM CHOWDER.— Mrs. W. F. C. Hasson. 

In the kettle in which the chowder is to be made fry several slices 
of salt pork. When nice and brown remove, and in the gravy put 4 
large potatoes and 4 onions which have been chopped; season with salt 
and pepper, add from 1 quart to 3 pints of water, and boil half an 
hour. Take 1 quart of clams or 1 can, and after cutting off the black 

18 soup. 

heads, chop and put them with the broth into the kettle about 10 
minutes before taking- up. When ready to serve, add pilot bread 
broken in small pieces. 

CREAM OF CORN SOUP.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 
Remove the corn from 1 can; cover with 3 cups of water; simmer 
for one hour; press through a sieve. Scald 3 cups of milk; add the 
corn and 1 tablespoon of butter well mixed with 1 tablespoon of 
flour. Cook until smooth, season with salt and pepper, add ^ cup of 
cream and stir until heated. Take from the fire, add 1 beaten egg, 
and serve at once. The egg or cream may be omitted, but the soup is 
far more delicious with the addition of both. The corn from twelve 
ears equals one can.

BOILED FISH.— Mrs. L. A. Lancel. 
(To be served cold.) 

Put into the fish kettle enough water to cover the fish; add 1 large 
onion, small piece of garlic, 1 dozen cloves, 1 dozen allspice, 4 laurel 
leaves, 2 carrots, celery, i cup of vinegar: cover tight, and boil \ hour. 
Have the fish ready. Any fish of from 4 to 5 pounds will take from 15 
to 20 minutes. When done, serve cold. 

Sauce for same. — Make a mayonnaise; add a small piece of 
garlic; let it stand about one hour. Chop cucumbers fine. When 
ready to serve, add pepper, salt, juice of lemon, and lastly the chopped 
cucumbers. If necessary, thin with cream. 


2 tablespoons of mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons chopped capei's, J onion 
gi'ated. Mix 1 hour before using. 


6 raw tomatoes or i can; strain through a colander; add 3 
tablespoons chopped capers, 1 large pickled cucumber, and 1 pickled 
onion chopped very fine with the capers, 4 tablespoons tomato catsup, a 
dash of cayenne, 1 teaspoon of salt, and 1 cup of stock. Simmer 10 
minutes, and pour over boiled fish. 

TURBOT A LA CREME.— Mrs. E. R. Donohoe. 

Put } pound of flour in a saucepan, mix it gently with 1 quart of 
milk, and be careful that it is not lumpy; then tie up together 2 small 
onions, a bunch of parsley or sprig of thyme, for if put in loose they 
will discolor the sauce, which must be white; add a little grated nutmeg, 
1 teaspoonful of salt, \ teaspoonful of pepper; place it on a sharp fire, 
and stir it all the time; boil it until it forms a thickish paste; take it off 
the fire and add h pound of butter rather fresh, 2 yolks of eggs; mix 
them well into the sauce, and pass through a sieve; pour some of it into 
a dish which must be well buttered, then a layer of fresh codfish which 
should be already boiled and pulled to pieces to form small flakes; season 
it highly with pepper and salt, add more sauce, then the fish until it is 
all mixed up; sprinkle the top with bread crumbs and grated Parmesan 
cheese. Put it into a moderate oven for I hour, to give it a light brown 



Throw live terrapin into boiling water; after boiling fifteen minutes 
remove and take off black outside skin from the shell, the skin and nails 
from the claws; replace them in water a little salted, and cook until 
under shell cracks or feels soft to the touch. Remove the under shell 
carefully over a bowl, take out the sand-bag, remove head, gall-bag 
from the liver, and meat from upper shell. 


Place the meat, cloves, and eggs if any, of two terrapin in a 
saucepan; add a dash of cayenne, white pepper, a grating of nutmeg, 
small saltspoon of ground cloves, a wine glass of Madeira or sherry. 
Cook five minutes and put away to cool for future use. Place in a 
saucepan a cup of good stock, add a glass of Madeira. Blend h cup of 
butter with 2 tablespoons of flour; add this to the gravy, with a piece 
of lemon. Put in the terrapin, and heat. Have ready the yolks of '6 
hard boiled eggs mashed fine; beat and mix gradually with the ten-apin. 
The whites of the eggs can be chopped fine and added. 

Terrapin a la Maryland differs only in substituting cream for stock. 
The cream is warmed and added gradually to the eggs at the las 
minute, and not allowed to boil. Epicures prefer stock to cream. 

TERRAPIN STEW.— Mrs. W. B. Bradford. 

Boil according to size 30 or 40 minutes, so that the upper shell will 
separate from the. lower easily. Take gall-bag from liver, which is 
always found on the right lobe; avoid breaking, as it would give a bitter 
taste and spoil the dish. Strip the skin from the claws, cut off the nails 
and skin the head. Throw nothing away but the gall-bag. Cut all in 
small pieces and stew all slowly in sherry wine, with a good supply or 
butter and red pepper, for H hours, keeping closely covered all the 
time. Salt to taste. If they have no eggs in them, add two hard 
boiled hens' eggs to each terrapin just before the stew is done. Add a 
little flour rubbed in butter, just before taking from the fire. Place

OMELETTE.— Mrs. Win. B. Bradford. 

Beat the whites and yolks of 6 eggs separately. To the yolks add 
3 teaspoons of corn starch or flour, salt, and 1 cup of milk. Stir in the 
whites and turn into a hot buttered pan. When it sets put it on the top 
slide of the oven for a few minutes, then fold and serve. A little 
chopped parsley or finely chopped ham makes a variety, or a few cooked 
green peas, or a few fresh oysters seasoned and cooked'in their own juice 
until the gills curl, and spread over the omelette just before serving. 
Nice for an entree. 

OMELETTE.— Mrs. Carter P. Pomeroy. 

Sure to be good and light. 6 eggs, yolks and whites beaten separ- 
ately; \ tablespoon of butter; \ tablespoon of flour; 1 cup of milk; 
make a white sauce of milk, butter and flour, and when cold add first 
the yolks well beaten and then the whites beaten to a stiff froth; have 
the pan very hot, brown quickly, fold and serve. If possible put the 
pan in oven for a moment as it cooks more quickly. This makes a 
delicious entree with a little canned or green corn left from the day 
before, made hot and folded inside; or a little stewed tomato; or some 
asparagus tips cooked in a cream sauce; or as a dessert with lumps of 
sugar on the edge of the dish, upon which brandy or rum has been 
poured and lighted; bring it burning to the table, and with the serving- 
spoon throw the burning brandy over the omelette. 


Make either of the above omelettes, and just before folding, pour 
over the following; 2 heaping tablespoons chocolate, 1 tablespoon sugar. 
and 1 of water; cook until smooth. Serve as dessert.

Boil as many eggs as needed, 5 minutes; take off the shells and cut in

the eggs, and serve hot for lunch.

and drop into each one enough of the mixture to about half fill the 
ling; then drop a fresh egg on the top of each, not breaking the yolks: 
put some pieces of butter with salt and pepper over the top, and bake

squeeze the yolks of the eggs through a patent potato masher of the 
squeezing kind, and pile that on top. Serve hot on individual plates as 
an entree, or arrange with a garnish of parsley on a large platter; it is 
pretty and good, and easily made. 

Make a large cupful of cream sauce: add enough anchovy sauce to 
color it pink, about the color of shrimps, and either poach eggs in it. or 
put the sauce in a hot baking dish, drop the eggs carefully in. set in hot

Slice the ripe part of a watermelon, and cut it into diamonds, 
squares, hearts, or disks, the size of a mouthful. Put a layer of water-

water and bake in a moderate oven until it sets. When cold, loosen the 
edges and turn upon a platter. The syrup forms a sauce. If properly

makes a nice variety. These proportions without the syrup make 
delicious cup custards, or a nice boiled custard.

smooth paste of arrowroot and water; stir this into the boiling milk; 
add the sugar, flavor with vanilla; stir all the time until it thickens: 
turn out, and when cold serve with cream. 

JELLIED PLUM SYRUP.— Miss Margaret Bremner. 

Take the juice of any kind of fruit desired. Put \ a box gelatine to 
soak in 1 cup of cold water for 20 minutes; add 1 cup of boiling water, 
and 2 cups of syrup from a can of plums. If the Plymouth Rock 
gelatine is used, no other acid will be needed, otherwise the juice of 5 a 
lemon will improve it. Strain all into a large jelly mold, or cups that 
have been wet with cold water; put on ice or in a cool place until stiff; 
turn out and serve with cream and sugar or whipped cream. 2 or 3 
large plums cut into pieces and put in the jelly while cooking improves

squeeze out a few drops of the color, add to a little of the mixture, anil 
fill 3 more shells. Color some with chocolate, some with the yolks of 
eggs and some pink from a little of Knox's pink gelatine. W r hilc you 
are preparing the eggs, have the skin from 2 oranges or 2 lemons boiling;

scissors; then boil in syrup until clear, and spread out to dry. The next 
day turn out the jelly; around the edge of the nest put the peel for 
straw. Remove the shells from the eggs and pile in the nest; put- 
whipped cream all around the jelly. This is a very pretty dish, and 
delights the children. 


Take a small \ box of gelatine; place on fire with 1 cup or 1 1 cups of 
water, and allow to dissolve. After thoroughly dissolved, strain the 
same through a clean cloth into a pint of grated pineapple; stir thor-

scalding milk, heat to boiling point, and add the gelatine, stirring all 
the time till it is dissolved. Pour into a mold and set on ice. 


Dissolve 2 tablespoons of gelatine. Dip a mold in ice water; have 
large firm ripe strawberries; dip each berry in gelatine, and arrange 
around the sides and bottom of the mold. When cold, fill with whipped

mash them. Let stand until the sugar is dissolved, and then squeeze

more sugar. The pulp left in the cloth should be stirred into a little

Then freeze. Raspberry cream does not require so much of the fruit 
juice, as the flavor is stronger and richer.

Sift cream of tartar, baking- powder and soda dry with the flour. 

Never dissolve soda in a liquid as it is almost sure to leave streaks, 
and after it is dissolved the mixture cannot be as light as when fermen- 
tation takes place in the dough. 

When soda and sour milk are used always add a little baking- 
powder, and the mixture will be far lighter and will not taste of soda as 
it is almost sure to do if sufficient soda is used to make very light. 

Beat eggs separately. 

Dredge fruit with flour to prevent its sinking, and always add it last. 

Bake cake slowly at first, increasing the heat of the oven when well 
risen. Layer and sponge cakes require a quicker oven than loaf or fruit 
cake. Sponge ginger bread requires a slow oven. Cookies require a 
quick oven.

PASTRY.— Mrs. Geo. M. Dodge. 

Into 1 cup flour rub 1 tablespoon lard; then wet it with enough 
ice-cold water to make a soft dough. Roll out and spread with little 
bits of butter all over. Then sprinkle lightly with flour, and fold over 
into a roll. Roll out again with rolling pin and spread again with lard. 
Then repeat as first time, and roll in bits of butter the third time. If 
this method is followed and ice water is used, and if the dough is handled 
lightly and quickly, a nice flaky crust will be obtained. 
PIE CRUST.— Mrs. Geo. Bunn. 

3j cups of flour, 1 cup of shortening (half butter and half lard), a 
scant cup of water very cold, a pinch of salt. Handle as little as 

PIE CRUST.— Mrs. L. A. Lancel. 

| of a pint of flour, 2 heaping tablespoons lard, 1 teaspoon yeast 
powder, 2 eggs. Mix in a bowl with cold water until the dough is l'eady 
to roll out, not too stiff; roll out into a thin sheet, spread lard or butter 
over it and a little dusting of flour; then roll together; repeat this 3 
times; cover a plate, fill and bake. Spread a little lard on the top crust 
when it is put into the oven. 

LEMON PIE.— Mrs. A. A. Curtis- 

Yolks of 4 eggs, 1 cup sugar, juice of 3 lemons, whites of 2 eggs. 
Whip the whites, and mix with the yolks, sugar and lemon juice; cook 
all together in the mush boiler until thick, stirring all the time. Put 
this filling in the pie crust which should be baked first; whip the whites 
of 4 eggs for the top; and set in oven for a few seconds. Very fine. 
LEMON PIE.— Mrs. W. F. C. Hasson. 

Beat to a cream 4 ounces butter and 2 cups of sugar; add grated 
rind of 1 lemon, and the yolks of 10 eggs well beaten; mix in thoroughly 
lime juice enough to make quite sour, line a dish with rich paste and 
bake it. Pour in the mixture and bake in a moderate oven till quite 
firm, say 10 or 12 minutes. Then spread over it the whites of 3 eggs 
beaten to a very stiff froth with 2 tablespoons sugar and a little lemon; 
smooth cai'efully and put back in the oven till a light brown. Serve 
at once. 

LEMON PIES.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

1 tablespoon corn starch wet in a little cold water; pour over this 
about a teacup of boiling water; when clear it ought to be pretty thick; 
then add % cup of sugar, 1 tablespoon butter, the grated rind and juice 


of 1 lemon, and the yolks of 3 eggs. Line your pan with nice rich crust 
and bake, then pour in the filling. Beat the 3 whites to a stiff froth, 
add a few drops of lemon extract and 6 heaping tablespoons powdered 
sugar. Place in the oven for a few moments until a light brown. 
PINEAPPLE PIE..— Mrs. F. M. Angellotti. 
1 cup grated pineapple, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup cream, 1 tablespoon 
butter, 3 eggs (only the yolks); mix and bake about 45 minutes. Use 
the 3 whites of eggs for meringue. 

VINEGAR PIE.— Mrs. Prodtrottea. 
5 eggs, 2 large cups boiling water, 5 tablespoons vinegar, about 5 
tablespoons corn starch, butter size of an egg, 1 cup of sugar. Put the 
water, sugar, butter and vinegar in a pan, thicken with cornstarch, 
then add the beaten yolks, flavor with lemon and pour into the crust 
(bake the crust first); beat the whites of the eggs with 4 tablespoons of 
sugar, put over the pies, and set into the oven to brown lightly. This 
will make 2 pies. 

CUSTARD PIE.— Mrs. E. B. Mahon. 
3 eggs, 2 tablespoons of sugar, 1 pint of milk, nutmeg and a pinch 
of salt. 

BANANA PIE, NO. 1.— Mrs. A. A. Smith. 
Line a pan with good pastry; slice in very thinly 2 bananas; make a 
custard of 1 pint of milk, 2 well beaten eggs, a pinch of salt and 2 
tablespoons of sugar; pour over the bananas, and bake as a custard pie. 
BANANA PIE, NO. 2.— Mrs. A. A. Smith. 
Make a banana pie with a lower crust only ; bake the crust first, fill 
it with sliced bananas and powdered sugar; the fruit will soften in a few 
minutes; cover with whipped cream, and eat at once. 
SQUASH PIES.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 
Line the baking plates with nice, rich crust. Steam a Hubbard 
squash, and when done pass it through a colander. For 2 pies, beat up 
4 eggs, add 1 pint of squash, a little salt, 1 cup of sugar, 1 heaping 
teaspoon ginger, and f of a quart of milk. Bake until the mixture sets. 
1 cup of cream in place of some of the milk is a great improvement. 
Ingredients: J pound butter, 1 pound lump sugar, 6 eggs, rind of 2 
lemons, juice of 3. Put all in saucepan, having carefully strained the 
juice of lemons and grated the rind. Keep stirring over fire till as thick 
as honey, when it is done. (Will keep in jars for 3 months). Line some 
patty pans with good puff paste, rather more than half fill them with 
the mixture, and bake in 15 or 20 minutes in good brisk oven. 
Roll out some rich pie paste, brush the edge with yolk of egg, and 
let it bake at a medium heat. Peel 6 apples, cut them into small pieces, 
and mix them with 1J ounces of sugar; cook until quite soft; mix with 
them J ounce of finely shredded orange peel, and the same of burnt 


almonds; add a little cinnamon and some grated lemon, and spread this 
mixture upon the paste. Beat up the whites of 2 eggs to snow. Mix in 
2\ ounces of sugar, and put this into a conical, rolled paper bag; squeeze 
a network as well as a wreath-like edge on the cake; dust it with sugar, 
and put it in to the oven until it is a pale golden color. 

ORANGE TARTLETS.— Mrs. C. F. Robinson. 

3 large fine oranges (juice of 3 and rind 1), 1 cup sugar, 2 dessert- 
spoons butter, juice of J a lemon, 3 teaspoons cornstarch wet with lemon 
juice and 2 tablespoons of water, 1 egg\ beat to a smooth cream and let 
it boil up, then pour into patty tins lined with crust, and bake. 
FIG PUFFS.— Miss Margaret B emner. 

1 pound figs cut in small pieces, 1 cup of water, \ cup of sugar; boil 
the figs until tender; add the sugar while boiling; let cool; make a good 
rich pie crust, roll out a piece, spread the figs on, then roll out another 
piece about the same size and thin, and turn over the figs cut in bars \\ 
inches wide and 4 inches long; bake in a quick oven. These are very 
good . 

MINCE MEAT.— Mrs. Carter P. Pomeroy. 

(From an old English recipe handed down in the Morris family.) 
I beef's tongue well boiled, skinned and chopped fine; 2 pounds of 
beef suet and 8 pounds of tart apples, both chopped fine; 1 pint of 
molasses, 3 pounds of sugar, 4 tablespoons of cinnamon, 2 nutmegs, 2 
tablespoons cloves, a little salt sprinkled on the tongue; 1 quart of rich 
boiled cider (which should be boiled down till it is as thick as syrup) — 1 
quart after boiling. Put everything together and set over a kettle of 
boiling water till the suet melts; then add 4 pounds of raisins stoned, £ 
pound of citron cut very small, and 2 pounds of currants. Wine or 
brandy if you like, and more sugar if-you like it sweeter. 



—Mrs. W. F. Jones. 
Boil 1 fresh beef tongue and 1 beef heart until tender, in as little 
water as possible, and salt well when half done. Lean beef can be used, 
but is not so nice, for it is apt to be fibrous. Prepare the heart and 
tongue, and chop very fine. Measure, and use twice as many chopped 
apples as meat, and \ as much chopped suet as meat. 1 quart of boiled 
eider, or 1 gallon of cider boiled down to a quart; 1 quart syrup from 
sweet pickles, that from clingstone peaches is best; 1 pint of best brandy: 
the grated rind and juice of 3 lemons; 2 nutmegs,. 2 tablespoons cloves, 
2 tablespoons cinnamon, salt, 4 pounds seeded raisins, 2 pounds currants 
washed thoroughly, 1 pound citron chopped fine; brown sugar and 
syrup to taste. Cook all together in a preserving pan, stirring frequently. 
If too dry, add more syrup or pickle juice. More spices can also be 
added if liked. Put hot in fruit jars and this will keep indefinitely. 
When making the pies, add a tablespoon of brandy or wine to each pie.

spoon salt, 4 tablespoons sugar, and 2 teacups vinegar; chop the onions 
and peppers fine, put all together in a kettle, and let them simmer about

TO PICKLE OLIVES.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

Dissolve a 1 -pound can of Babbitt's Potash in 5 gallons of water. 
Wash the olives and put in only enough to have the lye simply cover 
them. Stir every few hours and taste. When the bitter is almost gone 
(the time varying from 24 hours to 9 days), pour off the lye and soak in 
clear cold water, changing frequently until the lye taste is all gone, but 
the olives must not get soft or mushy. Make a brine of 14 ounces of 
salt to a gallon of water, and pour it cold over the olives. Bottle cold, 
filling the bottles well. I have excellent results preserving ripe olives by 
this recipe.

x Jellies and pWiifs. x 


Make all jellies or preserves in granite or porcelain pans. 

Fruit for jelly should be not quite ripe. 

Fill the jars, run a knife to the bottom and then around the edge, 
that the air bubbles may rise. 

Have the fruit hot, fill the jars full, screw the covers tight (the 
rubber rings must be new each year); to test the tightness of the covers, 
turn the jars upside down and let them so remain for several hours. 

Boiling jelly after the sugar is in makes it dark in color. 

Fruit steamed in the jar, and a syrup poured over it afterwards, is 

CURRANT JELLY.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

Cook the currants on the stems, after they have been carefully 
picked over; put into a bag and let drain; measure and return to the 
fire and boil 15 minutes; then add an equal quantity of granulated sugar 
warmed in the oven, and boil 5 minutes longer; pour into glasses. If 
the flavor of raspberries is liked, cook with the currants about 2 little 
baskets of raspberries to 1 small drawer of currants. After using the 
juice that drained off, squeeze the bag and make jelly which will not be 
so clear but does well for puddings and cakes. Skim thoroughly as 
it boils. 

QUINCE JELLY.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

Wipe the quinces carefully, then quarter them, removing nothing 
but the blows or any imperfect part, put on in just sufficient cold water 
to cover the fruit; cook until tender, stirring from the bottom carefully, 
but do not break the fruit, or the juice will not run. Drain through a 
bag and squeeze (for this jelly will be clear if squeezed, and much more 
juice will be obtained); measure and return to the fire and boil from \ to 
1 hour according to whether the juice is watery or rich; add an equal 
amount of sugar which has been heated in the oven, and boil until it 
begins to jelly around the pan or drops from the spoon. Skim carefully. 
Jelly can be made from the cores and rinds left from making preserves. 
In making preserves steam the fruit until a little tender, then pour the 
syrup over, and the fruit will not be leathery. 

GRAPE JELLY.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

Wash the grapes (Isabellas are the best); pick from the stem, and 
proceed as in currant jelly. To prevent crystals forming after the jelly 
gets a little old, cook a small proportion of juicy apples, as you cook 


quinces, and add their juice to the grape juice. The apples also help to 
make a firmer jelly. Proceed as in other jelly, cooking about 1 hour 
before adding the sugar. 


Cover the jelly with thin brown paper; then melt in a saucepan 
some paraffine and pour over the paper to the depth of a quarter of an 
inch, and pour back into the saucepan immediately from the jelly glass; 
it will leave a thin coating over the top which will keep the jelly 
perfectly. I have used this with good success for many years. 
QUINCE HONEY.— Miss A. Gordon. 

5 nice quinces pared and grated, 1 pint of water, 5 pounds of 
granulated sugar; stir the grated quinces into the boiling sugar and 
water; cook 15 minutes, .pour into glasses, and let cool before covering. 
RHUBARB SAUCE.— Miss H. Pregge. 

Cut up the rhubarb into small pieces, leaving all the tender skin on; 
then put into a double boiler with sugar enough to sweeten, and cook 
until tender. This is very nice. 

CRANBERRY SAUCE.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 
Put 1 quart of well picked cranberries into 1 pint of boiling water, 
and boil rapidly until done; then press through a colander, return to 
the fire, add 2 cups of sugar, and cook a short time. The flavor is more 
delicate when it is brought to a half -jellied consistency. 

ORANGE MARMALADE.— Mrs. Carter P. Pomeroy. 

Slice 1 dozen oranges skins and all, with a potato slicer (the kind 
that comes for Saratoga potatoes); weigh the sliced fruit, and to each 
pound add H pints of water and boil for J of an hour; then let it stand 
for 24 hours; weigh it again, and to each pound add li pounds of sugar 
and the juice of 1 lemon, and boil for 25 minutes, not longer. Use 
common sour oranges, taking out the seeds as you slice them. Delicious 
and very easy to make. 


(3 pounds bitter oranges, 6 pounds sugar; peel the oranges and boil 
the skins till tender; rub the inside of each orange through a sieve to 
keep back the seeds; put the pulp and skins with the sugar, and boil 
half an hour. 

Take about 2 dozen nice juicy oranges, grate the rind of half of 
them and pare the other half. Cook the parings until tender, in plenty 
of water, throwing away the water. Carefully separate the seeds and 
white part from the juice and pulp. When the skins are well cooked, 
remove all the white coating inside, and clip the rind with scissors into 
fine strips. Measure or weigh both the rind and pulp, and put it on to 
boil for about an hour; then add the same amount of heated sugar, and 
let this boil until the right consistency is reached, stirring constantly. 
It can be tested by putting a little in a saucer on ice or in any cool place.

CREAM CANDY.— Miss Tena Bremner. 
2 cups granulated sugar, h cup cold water, \ teaspoon cream of 
tartar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, almond, or any flavoring desired. Boil sugar, 
cream of tartar and water together until it hairs from the spoon; add 
the flavoring; set it in a cool place, and when nearly cold beat it until 
light and creamy; when cold enough to handle, mold into any shapes 
desired; place on a platter to harden. Melt unsweetened chocolate in a 
double boiler, and with a long pin dip the creams into the chocolate and 
set aside to cool. A nice variety may be made by removing the pits 
from dates, and filling with plain cream shap3d to fit, or with cream into 
which chopped nuts have been mixed. Almonds blanched and placed 
on the creams before they are quite cool, or walnuts halved and creams 
put between them, make a variety. 

5 cups of granulated sugar, 2 cups of water, \ teaspoon of cream of 
tartar; stir all together, then put on the stove and boil without stirring 
about an hour, until it threads; with a wet cloth, constantly wipe around 
the edge to prevent it from going to sugar. When done, put the pan in 
cold water to cool, not letting it get too cold; when cool beat it until 
stiff, then knead it on a marble slab until all lumps are out; flavor and 
work into creams. 

MAPLE CREAM.— Mrs J. L. Tharp. 
2 cups of maple sugar, .} cup of cream, j cup almonds blanched and 
chopped. Boil until crisp in water. Put in the nuts after baking from 
the fire, stirring until cool. 

PEANUT CANDY.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 
Prepare 1 pint of shelled peanuts in a square pan, rubbing off all 
the skins. Put 2 cups of granulated sugar over the fire dry. and stir 
constantly until melted; then pour it over the candy. Great care must 
be used to prevent the sugar from burning. 

PANACHE CANDY.— Mrs. Oliver. 
4 cups brown sugar, 1 cup milk, the meats of 2 pounds of walnuts 
broken, 1 large tablespoon vanilla; boil all together over a slow fire till 
it sugars around the edge of the kettle; stir constantly; pour into a 
buttered dish, and cut into squares while warm. 

TOFFEE CANDY.— Miss Agnes I. Menties. 
2 cups of sugar, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 1 tablespoon water, 1 
tablespoon any flavoring preferred. It is done when it has boiled 20 


MOLASSES CANDY.-- Miss May Dollar. 

1 cup of molasses, 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of 
butter, 2 tablespoons of vinegar: boil 20 minutes; flavor as you like; 
make it with New Orleans molasses. 


1 cup of molasses, jj cup of white sugar, \ pound of chocolate, 1 
heaping tablespoon of butter; boil until hard, then pour into buttered 
plates, and when hard, cut into squares. Stir while boiling. 

Weigh 4 pounds of white sugar; place it in a kettle; add to this 2 
tablespoons of vinegar, 1 pint of rich cream and 2 ounces of butter; set 
the kettle on a moderate fire, and stir and cook the batch to a slight 
crack; pour out on buttered plates or a marble slab, and let it become 
cool enough to handle; then pull the batch, and flavor with 1 teaspoon 
of vanilla extract, when it will be ready for use. 

TAFFY.-J/ws Agnes I. Menzies. 

3 cups brown sugar, 1 tablespoon molasses, 11 tablespoons butter, 1 
tablespoon cream, a pinch of cream of tartar; flavor with vanilla : put 
in a buttered pan large enough to make the candy thin. Stir all the 


Blanch them by pouring hot water on them. When they are 
blanched and dry, measure them, and over each cupful of nuts pour 1 
tablespoon of best olive oil; then sprinkle with a tablespoon of salt for 
each cupful of nuts, mixing thoroughly. Put in not too hot an oven 
for about 10 minutes, or until they are nicely browned. 

SALTED ALMONDS.— Mrs. W. F. Jones. 

I have tried salting almonds in the oven, in butter, in olive oil, by 
sprinkling them over night with salt and roasting dry; but I find 
the most satisfactory way is to heat a little olive oil in a very small 
saucepan, drop a few of the almonds in and fry them as I would 
doughnuts. When brown, skim them out, throw them on brown paper 
and sprinkle with salt. As long as the olive oil is not burned, it can be 
used again by adding a little more oil to it.

To 1 quart of iced water add 4 ounces of dry granulated [sugar, the 
juice of 2 lemons and 3 oranges; mix thoroughly together until all the 
sugar is dissolved, when it will be ready to serve. A good summer drink. 

RASPBERRY SHRUB.— Mrs. J. E. Alexander. 

Cover the raspberries with best vinegar, and let them lay over night. 
In the morning mash the berries and squeeze through a coarse bag. To 
every pint of juice add 1 pint of sugar. Boil 20 minutes. When cool, 
bottle. This will make quite a thick syrup, which must be diluted when 


Put 4 quarts of red raspberries into an earthen or granite vessel: 
cover with good vinegar, and let stand for 24 hours; scald and strain; 
add 1 pound of sugar to every pint of juice; boil for about 20 minutes: 
skim well, and bottle. 


Take 8 pounds of very ripe red currants, pick off all the stems, and 
put them into a wide earthen pan; then squeeze them until the juice is 
all crushed out; leave them in the pan with the juice for 24 hours. Put 
2 pounds of raspberries in a saucepan with 2 teacups of water, and boil 
them for a few minutes until they are all crushed; then squeeze all 
through a jelly bag or hair sieve, pressing well to get all the juice out; 
weigh the juice, and for every pound put 2 pounds of loaf sugar broken 
into pieces. But the sugar into a preserving kettle with 1 pint of water, 
pour all the juice on it, let it boil for J hour, stirring frequently; then 
put it into small bottles and cork it for use. 2 tablespoonfuls in a glass 
of water makes a very refreshing drink in summer. Cherry syrup may 
be made in the same way with Morella cheries. 

NECTAR CREAM.— Miss L. P. Trumbull. 

2 quarts boiling water, 3h pounds white sugar, 4 ounces tartaric acid, 
whites of 6 eggs, .2 ounces wintergreen essence or any other preferred. 
Put sugar in water, and boil 10 minutes, then the acid and let it boil up: 
let it stand till milk-warm; beat the eggs stiff, stir them in with the 
wintergreen, and put in bottles; Mix 2 tablespoons of this cream in a 
glass of water-, with a wee bit of soda; beat and drink. 

RHUBARB WATER.— Mrs. J. M. Dollar. 

Cut up about 6 or 8 sticks of rhubard without peeling (wash well 
first), put into a stewpan, add 1 quart water, and boil for about 15 

126 DRINKS. 

minutes; then strain into a pitcher, and add sugar and lemon juice. 
When cold it is fit for use. 

BLACKBERRY CORDIAL.— J/,. s. 11. E. Neil 

2 quarts blackberry juice, 2 pounds granulated sugar, J- ounce 
cinnamon, J- ounce cloves, \ ounce allspice; simmer 20 minutes; when 
cold add 1 pint of the best brandy; then bottle and seal tight.

With 4 tablespoons of grated chocolate mix 1 of sugar, and wet 
with 1 of boiling water; rub this smooth with the bowl of the spoon, 
and then stir it into 1 pint of boiling water; let this boil up once; then 
add 1 pint of good milk; let this boil up again, and serve. A spoonful 
of whipped cream put on top of each cupful is quite an improvement.

BEEF TEA.— Mrs. D. WTdUemore. 

Rules. — 1. Never let beef tea boil. 2. Always begin with cold 
water. 3. The finer the beef is cut the better. 4. There should be no 
fat, gristle or bone. 5. The proportion of beef and water is 1 pint of 
water to 1 pound of meat. 6. After being carefully made, remove all 
fat from the surface after it gets cold. 

Put 1 pound of beef into a glass 'fruit jar with 1 pint of cold water; 
let it soak for 2 hours; screw on the top and then set the jar into a vessel 
of boiling water, and boil for 3 hours; strain and salt to taste. The last 
vestige of fat can be removed with a piece of white blotting paper. 
MUTTON BROTH.— Mrs. D. Whittemore. 

11 pounds lean mutton, ] quart of cold water, salt to taste. Cut the 
mutton into thin slices, let it simmer in the cold water for 1 hour: then 
let it boil for 1 hour longer, and strain the broth through a sieve. This 
may be thickened with a little sago, if desired; or may be eaten with 
toasted crackers. This broth is more nourishing than beef tea.

with diarrhea. 

UNLEAVENED WAFERS.— Mrs. D. Whittemore. 

Mix 1 quart of flour into a stiff dough with sweet milk into which a 
little salt has been stirred ; roll out very thin, cut into round cakes, roll 
these out again very thin; hake quickly. These wafers are easily 
digested and are very delicate.

white of 1 egg. Beat well together the yolk of the egg and the dessert- 
spoon of brandy; add .] glass of barley water (boiled and strained), and
