Post #18 Cranberries

November 15, 2014

This recipe makes a sauce that would be very recognizable to the early native tribes of the New England area. They taught it to the settlers and we have been enjoying it ever since. The only difference would be the kind of sugar used. We use refined white sugar, which was rare in those days. In early colonial times maple sugar or honey would have been the sweeteners available. It is a very old recipe, indeed.

Post #17 Jelly Roll

Novemberber 1, 2014

This week I thought I would give you an idea of what it is I do here at Recipes: Then and Now. I will take a recipe and show you what I do to make it more usable in todays kitchens. By the way, use really good jam or jelly. It's the star of this show. If you use cheap jelly it will taste like you used cheap jelly.
