To Make Egg Sauce
Boil four eggs for ten minutes chop half of the whites, put them with the yolks, and chop them both together, but not very fine; put them into a quarter of a pound of good melted butter, and put it in a boat.
Most of the recipes are much longer and some involve cooking animal brains, hearts, heads and other parts of the animals that I personally wouldn't eat. However in those days they used very bit of the animal and wasted nothing. They couldn't trot off to a market on a whim.
For a novice cook this might not be a good choice but an established kitchen whiz would enjoy it.

I love reading the old recipes. Some are more work than I want to do these days but some are classic. This book also teaches the history of basic domestic chores.Published 2 months ago by Cecelia Ficke

This is more of a historic novel than a cookbook. The recipes were not complete enough to follow. I will continue searching for a true southern cookbook.Published 14 months ago by lolalafonda
