Calf's Head(Practical Cookery.) - (The Most Valuable And Original Receipts)
Boil the head two hours, together with the lights and feet. Put in the
liver when it has boiled an hour and twenty minutes. Before the head is
done, tie the brains in a bag, and boil them with it; when the brains
are done, take them up, season them with salt, pepper, butter, and sweet
herbs, or spices if you like--use this as a dressing for the head. Some
people prefer part of the liver and feet for dressing--they are prepared
like the brains. The liquor that the calf's head is boiled in, makes a
good soup, seasoned in a plain way like any other veal soup, or seasoned
turtle fashion. The liquor should stand until the next day after the
head is boiled, in order to have the fat rise, and skimmed off. If you
wish to have your calf's head look brown, take it up when tender, rub a
little butter over it, sprinkle on salt, pepper, and allspice--sprinkle
flour over it, and put before the fire, with a Dutch oven over it, or in
a brick oven where it will brown quick. Warm up the brains with a little
water, butter, salt, and pepper. Add wine and spices if you like. Serve
it up as a dressing for the head. Calf's head is also good, baked. Halve
it, rub butter over it, put it in a pan, with about a quart of water;
then cover it with a dressing made of bread soaked soft, a little
butter, an egg, and season it with salt, pepper, and powdered mace.
Slice up the brains, and lay them in the pan with the head. Bake it in a
quick oven, and garnish it with slices of lemon, or force meat balls.
Calf's Head SurprisedAnd the dish set before them,--O dish well devised!--
Was what Old Mother Glasse calls "_a calf's head surprised_."
Clean and blanch a calf's head, boil it till the bones will come out
easily, then bone and press it between two dishes, so as to give it a
headlong form; beat it with the yolks of four eggs, a little melted
butter, pepper and salt. Divide the head when cold, and brush it all
over with the beaten eggs, and strew over it grated bread, which is put
over one half; a good quantity of finely minced parsley should be mixed;
place the head upon a dish, and bake it of a nice brown color. Serve it
with a sauce of parsley and butter, and with one of good gravy, mixed
with the brains, which have been previously boiled, chopped, and
seasoned with a little cayenne and salt.
Calf's Head RoastedGood L--d! to see the various ways
Of dressing a calf's head.
Wash and clean it well, parboil it, take out the bones, brains, and
tongue; make forcemeat sufficient for the head, and some balls with
breadcrumbs, minced suet, parsley, grated ham, and a little pounded veal
or cold fowl; season with salt, grated nutmeg, and lemon-peel; bind it
with an egg beaten up; fill the head with it, which must then be sewed
up, or fastened with skewers and tied; while roasting baste it well with
butter; beat up the brains with a little cream, the yolk of an egg, some
minced parsley, a little pepper and salt; blanch the tongue and cut it
into slices, and fry it with the brains, forcemeat balls, and thin
slices of bacon.
Serve the head with white or brown thickened gravy, and place the tongue
and forcemeat balls round it. Garnish with cut lemon. It will require
one hour and a half to roast.

Sauce For Turtle Or Calf's HeadTo half a pint of hot melted butter, or beef gravy, put the juice and
grated rind of half a lemon, a little sage, basil, or sweet marjoram, a
little cayenne, or black pepper, and salt. Add a wine glass of white
wine just before you take it up.
Mock Turtle Or Calf's Head SoupBoil the head until perfectly tender--then take it out, strain the
liquor, and set it away until the next day--then skim off the fat, cut
up the meat, together with the lights, and put it into the liquor, put
it on the fire, and season it with salt, pepper, cloves, and mace--add
onions and sweet herbs, if you like--stew it gently for half an hour.
Just before you take it up, add half a pint of white wine. For the
balls, chop lean veal fine, with a little salt pork, add the brains, and
season it with salt, pepper, cloves, mace, sweet herbs or curry powder,
make it up into balls about the size of half an egg, boil part in the
soup, and fry the remainder, and put them in a dish by themselves.
Half A Calf's Head BoiledBe careful and get a young one, as they look much handsomer served up,
and besides are more tender. First cut in the direction c, b. The
throat bread is considered the choicest part; it lies in the fleshy
portion, near the termination of the jaw-bone, and the line c, d,
shows the direction to cut into it. On the under part of the lower jaw
there is some very nice meat; and about the ear, g, some fat rather
gristly, but highly esteemed. The part near the neck is very inferior.
Sometimes the bone in the line f, e, is cut off, but this is a
coarse part. The sweet tooth is quite a delicacy--it lies back of all
the rest, and, in a young calf, is easily extracted with the knife. Many
like the eye, which you must cut out with the point of your knife, and
divide in two. Under the head is the palate, which is reckoned a nicety.
