DOMESTIC RECIPES FROM 1884
(Transcribed from The Troy Messenger, Troy, Alabama July 3, 1884 Note: This is the way the recipes were published in the newspapers, minus cooking temp. and time.)
One quart of cold boiled potatoes cut into dices, one tablespoonful of chopped onion, three tablespoonfuls of butter, one tablespoonful of parsley chopped fine. Fry the onion in the butter till yellow, then stir in the potatoes and parsley, one teaspoonful of salt, one-half teaspoonful of pepper. Stir carefully with a fork so the potatoes will not get broken.
Shave fine one-half of a good-sized cabbage, add to it one cupful of vinegar, three beaten eggs, one tablespoonful of olive oil, one-half teacup of sweet cream, one tablespoonful of melted butter, salt.
