Title: Non-19th Century recipes
Post by: Ruff Justice on July 15, 2005, 04:51:07 PM
1 stick unsalted butter
1 cup water
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/2 cups self-rising cake flour
1/3 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups fresh or thawed frozen blackberries
vanilla ice cream

Preheat oven to 350. In a 10-inch glass pie plate or baking dish, melt 1/2 stick of uncut butter in
oven. In a small saucepan combine water and 1 cup sugar and heat over moderate heat stirring
occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved. In a food processor pulse together flour and
remaining 1/2 stick cut-up butter until mixture resembles fine meal. Add milk and pulse just
until dough forms. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and with a floured rolling pin
roll into an 11x9-inch rectangle pan. Sprinkle dough with cinnamon and scatter blackberries
evenly over top. Beginning with a long side, roll up dough jellyroll fashion and cut into 1-1/2
inch thick slices. Arrange slices, cut sides up, on melted butter in pie plate or baking dish. Pour
sugar syrup over slices, soaking dough, and bake cobbler in middle of oven for 45 minutes.
Sprinkle remaining 2 tablespoons sugar over cobbler and bake for 15 minutes more, or until
golden. Serve cobbler warm with ice cream.

Title: No Bake Fruitcake (or Icebox Fruitcake for usins below the Mason-Dixon)
Post by: Capt. Hamp Cox on July 15, 2005, 08:58:07 PM

This is one I grew up with.  Don't know when or where my mom got the recipe, but I remember enjoying her version of this during the Thanksgiving - Christmas season from the time I was a pre-teen on, until Alzheimers took over about fifteen years ago.   She died in April of this year.  Either my wife or I make this at least once each holiday season, and it never lasts long.

Line loaf pan, one which holds about 6 cups, with waxed paper -- bottom and sides. 

Put into a 2 qt. bowl:

   3/4 cup evaporated milk
   24 large marshmallows (cut finely) or 3 cups midget marshmallows and 1/3 cup orange juice.  Let    stand.

Measure 6 cups graham cracker crumbs (about 6 dozen 2 1/2" crackers, cruslhed) into a bowl, add:

   1/2 teaspoon cinnamon       1 1/2 cups seedless raisins
   1/2 teaspoon nutmeg         3/4 cup minely cut dates
   1/2 teaspoon cloves (powdered)      1 cup chopped nuts (we use pecans)
               1 1/4 cup candied fruit (mixed, or cherries or pineapple)

Add dry ingredients to lliquid mixture and large spoon, then with hands until crumbs are moistened.  Press firmly into pan.  If desired, top with additional fruit and/or nuts.  Cover tightly.  Chill 2 days before slicing (I have a problem waiting that long).  Keep in refrigerator.  Makes 3 1/2 lbs.

3 tablespoon dijon mustard
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup honey

Remove the layer of skin from ham, leaving a thin layer of fat to keep the meat juicy while baking. Score the surface of the ham in a diamond pattern, without cutting into the meat. Place a whole clove in the center of half the diamonds. Place ham in roasting pan and brush top with mustard. Combine sugar, honey and cinnamon; heat over medium temperature, about 2 minutes until mixture will pour, but not thin. Spread over ham.

1 5-8 pound boston butt pork
12 ounce apple cider vinegar
1 apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoon cayenne pepper flakes
4 tablespoon cayenne pepper flakes
8 bunch garlic
1 tablespoon salt
pan sauce
2 cup water

Put a bag of charcoal in the firebox, open the vents, light it, and let it burn down to coals. Then add wood (generally oak) two parts wet (soaked) wood to one part dry regulate the dampers, and put the shoulders or butts, fat side up, in the cooking chamber. Beneath the meat put a drip pan half-filled with apple cider vinegar. Keep the heat between 180-260 degrees throughout the smoking process; the optimum range is 220-240 degrees. Keep the firebox fed and a good smoke going for between 8 to 10 hours. Do not open the cooking chamber to baste the meat--the only time you open the cooking chamber is when the temperature spikes above 260 degrees, and you open it only long enough to bring the temperature back in the proper range. By the time the smoking period is finished, the outside of the pork will have a golden amber to dark brown crust. Now, take the meat and put it in a covered Dutch oven. If it's too dark outside to continue, preheat your indoor stoves' oven to just under 300 degrees; otherwise, just raise the temperature in the cooking chamber a like amount. Get a quart-sized Mason jar; fill it halfway with apple cider vinegar, add one (or more) teaspoons of red pepper flakes, and fill the rest of the jar with water. Dump this into the Dutch oven with the pork, cover, and cook until the meat falls from the bone, about 2 more hours or so. When the meat is done, let it cool a bit. [If you're too tired, you can stop here for the day--cover them up, put them in the fridge, and warm them up the next morning and continue the procedure]. While it's cooling, fill some 16 ounce bottles with apple cider vinegar, adding about a teaspoon of red pepper flakes to each one. When the pork has cooled enough to handle , pull it into thumb sized chunks, discarding as much fat as possible. Pack roughly 3 pounds of barbeque into a large frying pan. Dissolve 1 tablespoon of salt into 2 1/2 cups of warm water and pour it into the pan.

Add about 12 ounces of your apple cider vinegar and red pepper sauce, turn the heat to medium, and let the liquid slowly simmer off, stirring frequently, until the sauce just barely oozes over the top of your spatula when you press down on the barbeque with it. Remove from heat.

Title: Tom's Slaw
Post by: Forty Rod on July 17, 2005, 01:36:05 PM
1 part white vinegar

1 part vegetable oil (you can try olive oil…I personally didn’t care for it)

1 part Miracle Whip salad dressing

2 parts granulated white sugar

Put these together in a bowl large enough to hold all the slaw you’re going to make and a little larger…you’re going to mix it in the same bowl.

Blend it thoroughly with a whip until it’s totally smooth.

(It doesn’t mix things any better than a fork, but you look classier and more professional using a whip.)

I use a commercially prepared slaw mix from the produce section at the store…it’s fresh and a lot easier than chopping it myself.  Add the chopped slaw mix to the bowl and stir it together with a large spoon.


Chill and serve.


Historical note:
I “stole” this recipe from a restaurant I was managing in Peoria in 1972.  I’ve had people tell me for years how good it is.

1 large onion, chopped
1 tablespoons lard, bacon fat or shortening
1 pound boneless lamb, cubed
2 cup diced potatoes
1/2 cup chopped celery tops
1/3 cup red chili pulp or 2 tablespoons pure ground chili
3 fresh tomatoes, chopped or 1 cup canned tomatoes, drained and chopped
3 cup hot beef stock
salt to taste

blue balls:
1 cup finely ground blue cornmeal
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon lard or bacon fat
1/3 cup milk
dried red chilies for pulp

To turn dried chili pods into pulp, first wash them, then toast them lightly in a skillet or in a 250 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Under running cold water, remove their stems and all seeds. Cover the pods with boiling water and let them soak for 30 minutes. Drain them, reserving the water, and put them into a blender with a little of the liquid, then blend until smooth. For 1 cup pulp, you will need 8 to 10 large dried New Mexican chili pods. In a large, wide-mouthed pot like a Dutch oven, sauté onion in lard. Add lamb and sear quickly, then add remaining ingredients. Bring to a simmer and stew gently for about 30 minutes. Meantime, make the dumplings. Mix together meal, baking powder, and salt. Work in lard with your fingertips and add milk. Roll into balls 1 1/2 inches in diameter, drop on top of the stew, cover the stewpot, and steam for 20 to 25 minutes without lifting the lid.

12 dried red chilies
2 quarts water boiling
3 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup garlic puree *
1/4 teaspoon salt or to taste
3 tablespoons flour

Garlic puree: Peel 8 whole heads of garlic by smashing the cloves with the side of a wide knife; the peel will slip off easily then. Put the peeled garlic in a blender with about 2 cups of water, and puree. Drain, if necessary, and store in a tightly closed glass jar in the refrigerator.

Sauce: The peppers are softened in boiling water, then ground into a rich red paste. The paste is thinned with the cooking liquid for use as a sauce for enchiladas, et cetera. Left un-thinned andspiced with oregano and vinegar it is used as a marinade for carne (beef) adobada or puerco (pork) adobada. Wash chilies in cold water and remove stems. Cook in boiling water until tender. Remove chilies and reserve the cooking liquid. Place a few of the chilies in a blender, along with 1/2 cup reserved liquid, and blend to a paste. Remove to bowl. Repeat with remaining chilies. It is now unseasoned red chili paste. Heat oil in a large skillet. Add garlic puree and flour, stirring until four browns. Add the chili paste, stirring constantly until it boils and thickens. Season with salt. Thin slightly with cooking liquid.

Title: Oven Brisket
Post by: Capt. Hamp Cox on July 26, 2005, 07:04:11 AM
I do my briskets on a home-built smoker, using aged mesquite or liveoak to provide the heat and smoke.  Prior to acquiring the smoker, I used the following recipe of my mom's, and still do occsionally because it is good and brings back lots of fond memories.

6 lb brisket (if larger, increase other ingredients accordingly)
3 oz liquid smoke
celery salt
onion salt
black pepper
worchestershire sauce
BBQ sauce (your choice)

1st day

Line pan (large enough for your brisket, and at least a couple of inches deep) with aluminum foil (I generally use heavy duty).

Sprinkle brisket generously on both sides with the salts.  Pour on liquid smoke.  Cover with foil and refrigerate.

2nd Day

Sprinkle liberally with pepper and worchestershire sauce.  Cover with foil again and bake @ 275 degrees for 5 hours (or until tender).  Uncover.  Pour BBQ sauce over brisket.  Cover with foil and bake one hour longer.  Pour off most of the juice.  Cool.  Refrigerate covered overnight.

3rd Day

Slice thinly. 

Warm with a little BBQ sauce for one hour at 275 degrees before serving. 

Serve with potato salad, and pinto beans, or your favorite sides.  Have seconds readily available.
Title: camp chili
Post by: litl rooster on July 30, 2005, 07:22:22 PM
 I know everyone has got a chili receipe...This is one I have worked on for 20 years as a guide, camp jack, wrangler...My hunting season as a young man usually started the day after Thanksgiving, being tired of the tradional turkey leftovers is where this started. After 20 years I've got it down to the following. Now I must warn you I learned to cook from my ma and Grandma...They called a teaspoon the smaller spoon in the flatware box. Not one of those measuring devices on a ring with several sizes. This goes for a tablespoon also. A measuring cup was a scoop and nothing more. I use a large cast iron skillet for browning and sauteing. A la
rge enameled pot for the cooking.

soak in a large glass or ceranmic bowl of cold water. 1/2 pound each of white and med kidney beans,(pinto) can and have subsituted the whites, cover and soak over night
2nd bowl soak 1/3 to1/2 pounds of black beans,,,,Optional
 The next morning drain and rince and place all the beans in pot, add enough water to cover, bring to low boil while you prepare the remaining ingrediants.
  In your seasoned skillet, add some left ove turkey chopped to 1/2" to 1" cubes not really big will cook down to bite size pieces. Also add some chopped or cubed up BEEF pieces round steak, venison, elk even Buffalo has been used in this. They are all good. Usually I used leftover roast or steak pieces.
Now dice up 2 medium onions I prefer vidallias but they are not always available,
chp or mince 2 to 3 cloves of garlic
reserve half the onion and add the balance with the garlic in the skillet with meat. Simmer in with meat.
  To the big pot add the balance add of  the onions and the following ingrediants
4 or 5 medium tomatoes I prefer Romas. clean them and chop in medium size pieces
2 or 3 Jalpenos, steamed seeded rinced and sliced into thin slices
1 10oz can of tomatoe sauce, if you can tomatoe sauce at home add that. Hunts does not pay me anything for using their brand or mentioning it.
now add 1 tablespoon each more if you desire
 The dark prepared chili powder
  light prepared chili powder
cheyene powder... I buy most of my spices in the Mexican foods section at the store, there in cellofane pakages with yellow and red labels with spanish and english labels, They are a 1/3 of the price of the canned spices and more by weight.
 Now crack some black pepper over your hot meat mixture, stir it into the pot.

Cook over medium heat around 4 hours, stir occassionally...don't be afraid to taste it and add more chili's.
around the third hour of cooking add 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and drain 1 small can of garbonzo beans and add it, cook another hour.

Reading this I guess I negelected to say you need approx. 1 pound each of the beef and turkey, however more won't hurt. My pot will serve 10 to 12 servings. Serving with Johnny cake(cornbread from the skillet) or Biscuits and or Tortillas

Title: Graham Cracker Loaf ( Old receipe of my Mom's)
Post by: Four-Eyed Buck on December 08, 2005, 08:06:24 PM
Okay, I mentioned this a few months ago and after tearing things apart for awhile today, ran across this version of it, not the original sheet I remember, but think I can fill in the blanks from memory( please stay away, CRS!)
                   Graham Cracker Loaf
    24 Graham Crackers + 4 for rolling the loaf or loaves in
    1/2 package of mini marshmellows( or cut up full sized ones to equal( time consuming, but I can remember doing this as a kid))
     1/2 lb English Walnuts
     1/2 lb dates( pitted)
     1/2 pint coffee cream
       small jar of red cherries( believe these are Maraschino)
    Roll crackers with rolling pin to crush them, chop walnuts, cut up dates( dipping scissors in water will help with the stickies), cut up cherries( water trick will help here as well).
 Mix 24 crushed grahams and other chopped/cut items adding the cream, should make for a good thick consistencey. Shape mixture into loaves( should make two fair sized ones, IIRC). roll these in the 4 other crushed grahams and wrap in waxed paper. Place in the refridgerator
  To serve, cut into slices and top with whipped cream

  Mom and I made this every Christmas when I was little, wasn't really Christmas time until we did. If you do make this and enjoy this, please think of my Mom as she's gone now and all I have is the memories and a few half scribbled receipes as she mostly did this stuff from rote...................Buck 8) :) :) :'(
