Scottish Heather Honey Sponge / Skotsk Lynghonningpudding

A traditional Scottish dessert recipe found on BBC Food
Scottish Heather Honey Sponge / Skotsk Lynghonningpudding

There’s nothing to compare to the light, fluffy texture of a steamed sponge pudding. Golden syrup is a classic addition, of course, but you will love this version, which makes the most of the fragrant flavour of Scottish heather honey. Any other well-flavoured honey will work well too.

Chinese Style Steamed Halibut with Cabbage / Kokt Kveite på Kinesisk Vis

A Chinese steamer like the one on the picture is a great addition to any kitchen and can be used to steam just about anything. Rise, fish,
vegetables, shelfish, you name it. If you haven’t already got one,
go get one.

Depression-era Blueberry Pudding / Blåbærpuddung fra De Harde Tredveåra

A dessert recipe from harder times found in
Bite From The Past
Depression-era Blueberry Pudding_post

The girl who runs Bite From The past writes: A librarian friend of mine recently came across a cookbook in our collection that she felt I had Depression-era Blueberry Pudding_ill_thumb[22]_thumbto know about! It is “The World’s Modern Cook Book and Kitchen Guide for the Busy Woman” by Mabel Claire, published in 1932. It’s got beautiful typeset that makes you want to bob your hair, grab your heels and gloves, and hop a train into the city.

But a close look through the recipes reveals less than glamorous times for American housewives, who struggled to stretch food dollars in the midst of one of the greatest economic calamities of our country’s history. The book is full of recipes for casseroles, potluck desserts, and dishes made with cheap commodities like eggs, oats, and noodles. I wonder if the women who cooked from it thought, as I do, that it does a good job of making frugal cooking look fancy.
