Sherry Waffles / Sherryvafler

A filled cookie recipe found in “Det Nye Kjøkkenbiblioteket”
(The New Kitchen Library) published in 1971

Sherry Waffles / Sherryvafler

From the recipe text: It can not be repeated too often that you are fairly well covered for surprises in the form of suddenly arriving guests if you in the cookie jar have finished baked cookies that just need a quick whipped cream or the like to make you able to serve something really nice – such as some sherry waffles.

As you can see from the text above, Scandinavian housewive’s greatest fear back in the late sixties and early seventies was to be caught red handed by unannounced guests without some tempting goodies to serve with the coffee. Life was hard back then I can tell you, I was there – Ted 😉

Peking Casserole / Pekinggryte

As the seventies neared its end the interest for Asian food grew in Europe, particularly Indian and Chinese. This dish is a good example of that, although chopsticks were obviously not in style yet even though the ingredients were perfectly cut for that purpose,but the rice was suggested cooked like you would it you intended to eat it with a fork – Ted  😉

This Swedish punch is usually served during Christmas, but don’t let that stop you from making a batch right now. You can always make more for Christmas – Ted  😉

Sack Posset – A Rich Pudding To Cure All Ills / Sack Posset – En Rik Pudding Som Kurerer Alle Onder

A fascinating 16th century recipe found on theguardian.com
sack posset – a rich pudding to cure all ills_post

Although similar to a syllabub, posset is much richer because it is more like a custard than a cream. Possets were served in ceramic posset pots, which looked a bit like a teapot with two handles. They were usually very decorative and extremely expensive to buy. This dish is therefore one of a high standard. Posset was originally more of a drink than a pudding and was often given to people in rich households when they were feeling unwell.

The recipe is from: The Closet of the Eminently Learned Sir Kenelme Digbie Kt. Opened, commonly known as The Closet Opened, an English cookery book first printed in 1669. It is supposedly based upon the writings of Sir Kenelm Digby, being as the title page states “published by his son’s consent”.

The book gives recipes for traditional English dishes such as meat pies, pasties and syllabub, but also reflects on Digby’s travels around Europe, with recipes such as “Pan Cotto, as the Cardinals use in Rome”. The book echoes an earlier age with some hundred recipes for brewing mead and metheglin.
