This book was written anonymously many years ago. The picture below is of the original cover of the book. Inside you will find traditional Dutch dishes that you can prepare for your family and friends.
The Pennsylvania Dutch are a hard working people and as they say, "Them that works hard, eats hearty." The blending of recipes from their many homelands and the ingredients available in their new land produced tasty dishes that have been handed down from mother to daughter for generations. Their cooking was truly a folk art requiring much intuitive knowledge, for recipes contained measurements such as "flour to stiffen", "butter the size of a walnut", and "large as an apple." Many of the recipes have been made more exact and standardized providing us with a regional cookery we can all enjoy.
With over 200 recipes, you are sure to find some very special dishes that you just have to try. Here are just a few that might catch your fancy:
Hot Dutch Potato Salad
Dutch Hot Slaw
Chicken Corn Soup
Pennsylvania Dutch Beef with Onions
Dutch Meat Loaf
Ham and Green Bean Potatoes
Sweet and Sour Beets
Dutch Potato Croquettes
Bread and Butter Pickles
Fastnachts (Raised Doughnuts)
There's even an old York County recipe for something called
Tangle Britches that sounds sort of like pieces of cinnamon
doughnuts that get tangled up during frying and are then dusted with powdered sugar. You will even learn how to make your own Funnel Cakes, not to mention the wonderful Moravian Christmas Cookies and the Sour Cream Raisin pie.
This is such book is such a rare find, it would surely make a wonderful gift!
