White Leek Bruet / Hvit Purre Bruet

A recipe from 1420 found on Inn At The CrossroadsWhite Leek Bruet / Hvit Purre Bruet

Chelsea at “Inn At The Crossroads” writes: The leeks and salt pork cook until they are so soft that they almost melt, leaving the slivered almonds to make a textural statement. Each bite transitions from the saltiness of the broth, to the soft flavors of the leeks and pork, then ends with a strong nutty, crunchy finish. I’ve made it as in the original, but if I were to make it again, I might include a sprig or two of herbs for some added nutrients and complexity. It would also be tasty paired with a nice toasted slice of dark rye bread.

Medieval Monday – Almond Milk / Mandelmelk

A staple medieval recipe found on mediumaevum.tumblr.com
Medieval Monday - Almond Milk / Mandelmelk

Almond milk was a staple of the medieval kitchen. It was used in a wide variety of dishes as a substitute for milk or cream, especially on “fish days”, when the church placed restrictions on what foods could be eaten (the most prominent of which were the days during lent). Fortunately, almond milk is quick and easy to make.

Baronet’s Curry / Baronettens Karri

A spicy curry dish recipe from the Victorian era
found at cookit.e2bn.org
Baronet’s Curry / Baronettens Karri

The first English curry house opened in London as early as in 1811 and towards the beginning of the Victorian era (she was born in 1819) exotic spices were getting more and more available. Cook books which were published by the mid 1800s featured many types of curry recipes, and towards the end of 1870 dry spices become so cheap that even farmers with a limited income could indulge in a curry dish from time to time.

Tiger Nut Balls / Tiger Nøttekuler

A 3.500 year old sweet recipe found on historyextra.com
Tiger Nut Balls / Tiger Nøttekuler

In every issue of BBC History Magazine, picture editor Sam Nott brings you a recipe from the past. In this article, Sam recreates a healthy snack thought to have been enjoyed in Egypt around 3,500 years ago.

Sam Not writes: If you, like me, have a sweet tooth but are trying to be healthier then try tiger nut balls.

I found lots of references to this being one of the first Egyptian recipes that we know of, found written on an ancient ostraca (inscribed broken pottery) dating back to 1600 BC. Although I haven’t found a definitive source for this (or why tiger nut balls don’t contain tiger nuts!) they sounded too delicious to pass over. As your average ancient Egyptian seems to have had a very sweet tooth and often added dates and honey to desserts, I like to think that this is a sweet that would have been made thousands of years ago.

Brune pinner_post

These cookies are often baked for Christmas in Norway, but many have the sense to enjoy them the year round. They were not part of my mother’s seven sorts baked for the holiday season, but I’ve had the good fortune to be offered them elsewhere both as a kid and as an addult. Delicious stuff I can tell you – Ted

Orange Flower Macaroons / Appelsinblomst makroner

An interwar years cake recipe found on cookit.e2bn.org
Orange Flower Macaroons / Appelsinblomst makroner

In the interwar years, the Afternoon Tea had dwindled down to ‘at homes’ with guests, but it remained popular.  More or less intricate cakes and sandwiches were served with freshly brewed tea.

This recipe is particularly is easy to make. Some period recipes are quite tricky and don’t always work. This one is very forgiving and therefore it’s a good one for an inexperienced cook.

Macaroon is the English translation from the French word “Macarone”. Most have almonds as their principal ingredient, but you can also have coconut macaroons too. All are delicious!

Almond Cake / Mandelkake

A cake recipe found in “Kaker til Kaffen” (Cakes for the Coffee) published by Hjemmets Kokebokklubb in 1979mandelkake_post

I told you I complained about the lack of sweetness in my old aunts’ cream puffs as a small child in an earlier post. Had the silly old bats* served this cake instead, there would have been no complaints.

* I apologize for the use of this word, but Marie, Emma and Inga always wore long black or dark grey old fashioned dresses and as a small child they reminded me of, well, bats and in an affectionate way I still think of bats when something reminds me of them. Like cream puffs – Ted  😉
