  • @roaring said in Really old recipes.:

    @aloedrink Beet Relish

    1 ½ lb. Cabbage

    Green or purple cabbage?

  • @Viola I'd say half / half purple for the taste and green for the optical contrast. Although 1,5 lb is about only one cabbage so maybe make it twice as much ?
    You can't ever have enough relish ^^

  • Some interesting recipes here, but 80 years isn't really old or a long time back. I personally know several people who are older! I expected to read something from centuries ago 😃

  • @luetage Like this? It's from 1658...

    A Trifle.

    Take boiled Cream and Rose water and sugar, and a little rennet, and stew them together.

    Old enough for ya?

  • @luetage Or how about this 1696 recipe..

    A Hare Hashed.

    Cut it out in quarters, chine it, and lay it in Clarret, mixed with three parts of water, and parboyl it, then slice the flesh in thin pieces, and lay it on your stew pan, let this be off the Body, but the legs wings, and head whole, almost cover it with some of the liquor it was boyled in, add some Butter, sliced Nutmeg, the juce of Lemon, and a little beaten Ginger, serve it upon sippets, Garnish it with Lemon, and sliced Onion.

  • Hmm, I don't know... all this modern cookery. It isn't even medieval.


    500g wheat flour
    300ml grape juice (or young wine)
    2 tblsp anise seeds
    2 tblsp cumin seeds
    100g lard
    50g grated cheese (sheep's cheese would be best)
    ca. 20 bay leaves

    Pour some must over the flour, add anise and cumin seeds, the lard and
    cheese. Work it together until you have a reasonable dough. Form
    rolls, then put one bay leaf under each of them.

    Bake 30-35 minutes at 180°C

    It's better to make the must rolls with yeast dough, because then they
    can be kept longer, and they are not so hard. To make the yeast dough,
    add 40g yeast to the flour + grape juice, leave it a while until you
    continue like above.
