1800s Cooking Tips and Recipes

Fried Pumpkin - Peel a small, tender pumpkin; cut it in slices half an inch thick and two inches square, sprinkle each piece with salt and let it stand in an earthen dish for an hour. Then wipe the slices, pepper them; roll them in flour and fry them brown in smoking hot fat enough to cover them; lay them on brown paper for a moment to free them from grease after they are done, and then serve them hot. Squash can be cooked in the same way.
