From humble spoonbread to chocolate caramels and gingersnaps that snap, this collection of recipes gives today's cooks a glimpse into the kitchens of the mid-nineteenth and early twentieth century.
Hattie Morton Speed gathered her own treasured recipes and those of her close friends. These recipes are reproduced here exactly as they appear in the collection provided to Farmington, followed by notes from modern cooks who tested and refined them. You'll find recipes for sugar pie, Mexican eggs, chicken ala king, transparent pie, and more. Heritage Recipes also includes brief sketches of some of the women who, many decades ago, prepared these recipes with love.
