Historical Cooking Books: The Ohio farmer’s home guide book by Eva A. Season (1888) – 19 in a series

December 10th, 2018 Comments off

Archive.org has a host of old cookery books (from mid-19th to mid-20th Century) available in many formats and on a host of topics. I happened across a few in my Pinterest feed and gone completely down the rabbit hole in this treasure trove of information. Sure some ideas might be out of date, but you never know what you might find when you explore these books. I’ll be sharing more books as I find them in the coming weeks. –Douglas

Home:

This word has a comparatively narrow signification in this country; generally it is used to denote a “dwelling place.” The English attach a far deeper meaning to it. To them it means “the place where the heart is/’ the one place on earth where, above all others, the affections are centered — father, mother, brother, sister, are all concentra- ted in that one word. To make our dwelling place a home it must be made attractive; it need not be fashionable; it must be neat. Do not shut out the sunshine; it may fade the carpet, but it will preserve the health of the inmates, and give an air of cheerfulness all through the house. Do not be afraid of a little fun. If you want to ruin your sons, let them think that all mirth and social enjoyment must be left on the threshold when they come home at night 1 When once a home is regarded as only a place in which to eat, drink and sleep, the work is begun that ends in gambling- houses and reckless degradation. Young people must have fun and relaxation somewhere; if they do not find it at their own hearth-stones, it will be sought at other and perhaps less profitable places. Therefore let the fire burn brightly at night, and make the homestead delightful with all those little arts that parents so perfectly understand. Do not re- press the buoyant spirit of your children. Half an hour of merriment around the lamp, in the firelight of a home, blots out the remembrance of many a care and annoyance of the day; and the best safeguard children can take with them into the world is the blessed influence of a bright little domestic sanctum.

PREFACE

It is not claimed that the receipts collected in this book are original with the contributors, but that they have been tried and are recommended by them. The compiler of these receipts has sufficient confidence in the experience and reputation of the contributors, al- most all of whom are personally known to her, to justify the hope that they will stand the test of the most critical. Many of these receipts have been used in their families for several generations, others we think will show that the contributors have kept pace with the times and selected the best of those of more recent introduction.

The prime object of the compiler of these receipts is to raise money for a charitable object, but she also hopes to bring within the reach of others many valua- ble receipts.

BESSIE E. GUNTER.

Accomack, C. H., Virginia, August, 1889.

COFFEE.

Take two pounds of good Java Coffee. Put it in a pan with a piece of lard the size of a hickory nut, to make it brown nicely. Roast slowly, stirring con- stantly, to keep from burning, until it is of a light brown color. To three pints of boiling water put five good tablespoonful or a good gill of ground coffee. Boil at least ten minutes, then take off and settle with a little cold water. Let it stand a short time before taking it to the table, so that it may settle well.

— MRS. M. A. A.

GRAPE WINE

Take the white grape when fully ripe, pick from the stems, pound to a pulp, put them into large stone jar, pour over them half as much water as there are grapes, cover with cheese cloth and let stand until next day, then squeeze out and strain the juice. Mix three pounds of granulated sugar and the whites of two eggs to each gallon of juice, boil a few minutes and skim. When cold, put into a keg until through fermenting. Bottle it, seal the corks, keep in cool place, or bury in sawdust.
