Coconut Brambles / Kokos Brambles

A recipe from “Coconut Dishes That Everybody Loves”
published by Franklin Baker Company in 1931

Coconut-Brambles_thumb3

In context: “Bramble” comes from Germanic bram-bezi, whence come also German Brombeere, Dutch Braambes and French framboise. It originated before the year 1000; Middle English; Old English bræmbel, variant of brǣmel, equivalent to brǣm– (cognate with Dutch braam broom ).

Bramble bushes have long, thorny, arching shoots and root easily. They send up long, arching canes that do not flower or set fruit until the second year of growth. Brambles usually have trifoliate or palmately-compound leaves.

Bramble fruits are aggregate fruits.  Each small unit is called a drupelet. In some, such as the blackberry, the flower receptacle is elongated and part of the ripe fruit, making the blackberry an aggregate-accessory fruit.

You can choose to see the name as refering to the cakes’ bushy look or refering to the fact that they contain blackberry jelly – Ted

Ham Croquettes / Skinkekroketter

Croquettes must have been really fashionable dishes to serve back in the thirties. I have over 40 cook books from that era and almost every one of them have a recipe for some kind of croquettes. Salmon, ham, chicken, cod, rice, you name it, croquettes were made.

Strawberry Charlotte / Jordbær Charlotte

A charlotte is a type of dessert or trifle that can be served hot or cold. It can also be known as an “ice-box cake”. Bread, sponge cake or biscuits/cookies or in this case sliced bananas are used to line a mold, which is then filled with a fruit puree, custardor ice cream. It can also be made using layers of bread or cake crumbs.

Classically, stale bread dipped in butter was used as the lining, but sponge cake or ladyfingers may be used today. The filling may be covered with a thin layer of similarly flavoured gelatin.

Lobster Salad / Hummersalat

A shellfish recipe found in “Old Gloucester Sea Food Recipes”
published by  Frank E Davis Fish Company in 1932Lobster Salad / Hummersalat

in the old days, in Nova Scotia where lots of lobster has always been caught, kids were embarrassed to bring lobster sandwhiches to school because it meant they were poor. People there called it the “cockroaches of the sea.” Then suddenly in the beginning of the 20th century, in New York, lobster is considered a delicacy, and a dish at a fashionable restaurant would have costed you an arm and a leg. Strange world we’re living in.

One of the most decorative ice cream desserts is the parfait. Borrowed from the French, it truly lives up to its meaning, which is “perfection.” The recipes in this section consist of alternate layers of ice cream, crushed fruits, whipped cream, and rich, colorful syrups.

Wipped Cream Cake / Kake av Pisket Kremfløte

I have three of these Presto flour promotion booklets from the 1930s All of them with illustrations in vivid deep watercolours like the one above. There are only six illustrations in each booklet, but becauce the watercolours are so exeptionally well done I chose to make a folder with the recipes and illustration as I usually do with blooklets and books with a lot more illustrations. This just because I felt like sharing these beautifull watercolours with you – Ted

A most delightful way of serving ice cream is with fruit. Fresh or canned fruit may beused and the amount of sugar varied as necessary. A little whipped cream or soft custard is a pleasant addition.

French Chocolate is a hot chocolate, de luxe. It is especially suitable for entertaining when the serving is done by the hostess, and makes an effective, gracious ceremony of afternoon refreshments
