When Julia Susannah Helm was just a little girl in Pennsylvania, she discovered a “receipt” for hash in a kitchen drawer, written out in the hand of her father’s former housekeeper. Her brother Jonathan made her a small wooden box to keep it in. That was the beginning of her recipe collection, which became one of her most cherished possessions.
It was never more important to her than when she took it to Shenandoah County, Virginia, to help her cousin prepare for her wedding. Almost out of the blue, Julia became Mrs. Roderick Owen, and the recipe collection proved invaluable to her as a young bride.
Enjoy the fictional aspects of this book in the Owen Universe, and then make the actual historical recipes to enjoy with friends and family.
Includes a Bonus Scene suggested by one of the recipes.
Julia prepared this dish for her father and her brother Jonathan once she was old enough to keep house and do the cooking and baking.
Cut up the rabbit and wash it. Put it in a stew-pan and season it with salt and pepper. Pour in half a pint of water, and when this has nearly stewed away, add half a pint of chicken stock, one tablespoon of vinegar, one half teaspoon of mace, and a tablespoonful of flour mixed with a quarter pound of butter.
Let it stew gently till quite tender, and then serve hot.
