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.


Buckwheat Scrapple

pork, penndutch

1/2 each hog's head
1 each liver
1 each heart
1 each sweetbreads
1 single corn meal, yellow
1 single buckwheat flour
1 single salt & pepper
1 single sage, powdered
1 single mace

Separate one hog's head into halves. Take out the eyes and brains. Scrape and thoroughly clean the head. Put 1/2 of the head, along with the liver, heart and sweetbreads of the hog into a large kettle and cover with 4 or 5 quarts of cold water. Simmer gently for 2 or 3 hours, or until the meat falls from the bones. Skim off grease carefully from the surface; remove meat, chop fine and weigh the meat. For every 3 pounds of meat, use 2 pounds of meal (2 parts corn meal and 1 part buckwheat flour), 2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1 tsp sage, and 1 tsp mace. Cook slowly over low flame about 1 hour. Pour into pan and let stand until cold. Cut in slices and fry until golden brown. Source: Pennsylvania Dutch Cook Book - Fine Old Recipes, Culinary Arts Press, 1936.
