Sour Cream Waffles / Rømmevafler

A breakfast recipe found  in “The New Sealtest Book of
Recipes and Menus” published by  Sealtest Inc in 1940Sour Cream Waffles / Rømmevafler

A rather surprising waffle recipe for scandinavians who do not serve waffles for breakfast, but more like we would serve cakes. A waffle recipe without sugar or other sweetening would of course then seem a little strange to us.

New England Boiled Dinner with Cranberry Pudding / New England Kokt Middag med Tyttebærpudding

When Grover Cleveland took over the presidency from Chester A. Arthur in 1885, he inherited more than a new address and the nation’s problems. He came into a legacy of epicurean dining that he loathed. The former President had liked his food with its nose in the air: dits of foie gras, dots of charlotte russe; he even dandified his macaroni pie by adding oysters. Cleveland, a regular Joe of simple tastes, put up with the fancy food; but one night, catching a whiff of corned beef and cabbage being eaten by the servants, the president traded his Arthurian meal for theirs. “It was the best dinner I had had for months,” he later beamed.

Buckwheat Cakes / Bokhvetepannekaker

A classic Ameican breakfast griddle cake recipe found in
“The Art of Baking Bread” published by
The Northwestern Yeast Co in 1922
Buckwheat Cakes / Bokhvetepannekaker

Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum) is a plant cultivated for its grain-like seeds and as a cover crop. To distinguish it from a related species, Fagopyrum tataricum, it is also known as common buckwheat, Japanese buckwheat and silverhull buckwheat.

Despite the name, buckwheat is not related to wheat, as it is not a grass. Instead, buckwheat is related to sorrel, knotweed, and rhubarb. Because its seeds are eaten and rich in complex carbohydrates, it is referred to as a pseudocereal. The cultivation of buckwheat grain declined sharply in the 20th century with the adoption of nitrogen fertilizer that increased the productivity of other staples.
