Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.


To Dry Beef

beef, penndutch

20 lb beef **
1 pint salt, kosher
1 teaspoon salt peter
1/4 lb brown sugar

** good fresh-killed beef (the rounds). Mix the last 3 ingredients well, rubbing out all the lumps. Divide the mixture into 3 equal portions. Place meat in a large bowl and rub thoroughly with one portion of the above mixture. Let stand 1 day. Follow same procedure on second and third days. Turn meat several times a day. Allow meat to remain in bowl for 7 more days, then hang in a warm place until meat stops dripping. Whe dripping has stopped, hang in a cool shed about 6 weeks to dry thoroughly. Wrap meat in clean muslin bags and keep in cool place. If in 6 months meat becomes too dark, soak it in cold water for 24 hours and wipe dry. Wrap again in muslin bags and hang in cool place.
