Lamb in Yogurt Sauce / Lam i Yoghurtsaus

A clamb recipe found in “Gryteretter” (Casseroles)
by Jennie Reekie published in Norwegian in 1977
Lamb in Yogurt Sauce / Lam i Yoghurtsaus

The lamb yogurt combination is known from a lot of different
cousins. We know it from Greece, North Africa the Indian subcontinent
and several other places. The book gives no clue to where this recipe comes from but an educated guess might place it in Northern Africa

Madeline’s Lemon Butter Sauce / Madelines Sitronsmørsaus

A vegetable sauce recipe from a slightly cheesy ad for
Sunkist Lemons  published in 1972
Madeline’s Lemon Butter Sauce / Madelines Sitronsmørsaus
Was it the candle lights, the soft music, or the little lemon trick on the vegetables that got to Arnold the night he proposed? Madeline  Nagel doesn’t care. It worked.

In 1972 Sunkist Lemons ran a whole series of ads build over the same slightly cheesy mould like this one. all based on women succeeding at cooking with lemon zest and lemon juice or both impressing boyfriends, in-laws or husband’s bosses. Al with a same rather mortifyingly bad text. The recipes that followed weren’t all that shabby though.

Fermented Raspberry Soda / Musserende Bringebærbrus

A homemade tart soda recipe found on saveur.com
Fermented Raspberry Soda_post

Cookbook author Amy Thielen likes to add a splash of this tart, naturally fizzy juice to grown-up, not-too-sweet ice cream floats for a bright swath of flavor. You may also like mixing it into cocktails and even vinaigrettes. You can start with any fruit, but the smaller and juicier the better.

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.
