Even my ancestors had to take a break from cooking once in a while. Ken and I will be on a two-week road trip, and although I’ve prepared some stories to keep up with 52 Ancestors while I’m gone, since I won’t be in my “test kitchen”, no food posts while I’m gone. But I promise to come back inspired by Southern cooking with more tasty stuff.
Meanwhile, try some of these favorites.
SOME SUMMER MEALS
Absolutely Best Blueberry Muffins (the wonder fruit eaten by Pilgrims)
Dandelion Greens (from Grandma Vera)
Salamugundi (Early American recipe that I propose as the official dish of the nation)
Harvard Beets (Two versions)
Kaser Special Tuna Salad (the first “meal” I prepared as a bride 55 years ago)
AND FOR DESSERT.
Bird’s Nest Pudding (a pioneer recipe)
Molasses Apple Upside Down Cake (or make it with pears)
Scottish Oatcakes (the ancestors of oatmeal cookies)
Rhubarb Pie (my mother-in-law Agnes Badertscher’s style)
That should keep you busy while the kitchen is closed here at Ancestors in Aprons. Tell me, have you tried any recipes from Ancestors in Aprons? Do you have a favorite?
