Suet Pudding and the joy of old recipe cards
You can click on the image above to make it larger.
I'm still going through my parents home, and it's hard choosing what to keep, what to donate but there is also joy. Things like finding a collection of old recipe cards. The card above is hand written by my Great-grandmother- Jane Bradley, and it's from my Great-Aunt's mother-in-law. I'm so grateful to my cousin Jane who was able to identify the handwriting. Now I know what to look for! My grandmother's typewriter and handwriting are easy for me to recognize.
The history just amazes me. It's too good not to share.
Ten Eyck Suet Pudding
1 cup molasses
1 cup sweet milk
1 cup suet chopped fine
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup currants
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
Salt and season to taste (I'd suggest mace, nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves)
Steam for 1 hour.
I've never tried this recipe, but plan to this summer. Maybe modify it with the berries I have available.
