Egg Gravy - Butter in the Well #3
Publisher: Butterfield Books Inc.
Authentic Recipes from the Butter in the Well Series
Butter in the Well Series, Book 3
Faded recipes. We’ve all come across them from time to time in our lives, either handwritten by ourselves or by another person in our family, or as old yellowed newspaper clippings stuck in a cookbook of sorts.
While doing research for the Butter in the Well series, the author found old recipes and home remedies along with family and community histories.
These recipes had been handwritten in old ledger books, on scraps of paper, in the margins of old cookbooks and forever etched in the memories of those pioneer women’s children that Linda Hubalek interviewed.
As a result, Egg Gravy is a collection of recipes the pioneer women used during their homesteading days. Most of the recipes can be traced back to the original women that homesteaded the real-life setting of Butter in the Well. Antique family photos add a personal feel to the cookbook.
“From Green Pumpkin Pie, Caramel Ice Cream, and Smoked Pig Paunch to Christine’s Fruit Cake, Apple Sauce Cake, and Rhubarb Marmalade, these are culinary samplings of a yesteryear that would grace any menu today.”—Midwest Book Review
