Around the House – Tasty Bits of Food

Okay, these are things that sound tasty to me….

Baked Egg-plant – Parboil it until it is soft enough to stick a straw into; then cut it just in half; scoop out the inside, leaving the hull; shop it up very fine, and season very highly with pepper and salt, a good deal of butter, and crumbs of bread. Mix all well together and return it into the hull; then strew crumbs of bread on the top, and bake it for about an hour. (The Genesee Farmer, September 1860)

Fried or Broiled Egg-plant – Parboil it; cut into slices and season very highly with pepper and salt; fry or broil it (as you do mushrooms.) in a pan with butter. If nicely done, it is very similar in flavor to the mushroom. (The Genesee Farmer, September 1860)

To Preserve Rhubarb – Cut the stalks into pieces an inch or so in length; string and dry the same as apple, and stow away in a dry place for winter and spring use. (The Genesee Farmer, September 1860)
