Recipes - 1894 Style

~ from Jone Johnson Lewis, Women's History Guide

Recipes, 1894 style
The recipes in this collection are representative of cooking in America in the late 19th century, and the compilation of a cookbook shows the ways in which women were beginning to organize and act both within their traditional roles and outside of traditional expectations.  The recipes are presented exactly as written in 1894, and may not conform to current nutritional or food preparation standards.  Try at your own risk.

Recipes Tried and True
Compiled by the Ladies' Aid Society of the First Presbyterian Church, Marion, Ohio, 1894

"We may live without poetry, music, and art;
We may live without conscience, and live without heart;
We may live without friends; we may live without books;
But civilized man cannot live without cooks."


To the Mothers, Wives, Sisters and Sweethearts of the Good Men of America this Book is Dedicated by the "TRUE BLUES."

(other selections have not been invluded in this web version of the cookbook)
