I came across this recipe I thought no-one else would
have heard of it either, so I thought I would publish
it both out of interest and to see what else anyone
could come up with.
recipe comes form a little cookery book entitled 'The
"A.L." County Cookery Book' compiled by a
County Education Secretary and Domestic Subjects Staff.
The book was actually my wife's grandmother's from when
she left school in 1913.
don't suppose there are too many copies around - it
also makes interesting reading to see what peole were
using and eating all that time ago.
anyone can send me any other interesting recipes from
the past get in touch - email
