(Vaughan’s Vegetable Cook Book)

Parsley is the prime favorite of the garnishes. Its pretty curled leaves

are used to decorate fish flesh and fowl and many a vegetable. Either

natural, minced or fried, it is an appetizing addition to many sauces,

soups, dressings and salads.

Other Recipes


Wash and drain a handful of fresh young sprigs of parsley, dry
them with a cloth, place them before the fire on a dish, turn them
frequently, and they will be perfectly crisp in ten minutes.

Other Recipes


When the parsley is prepared as above, fry it in butter or clarified
suet, then drain it on a cloth placed before the fire.

Other Recipes


Pare very thin, medium potatoes as near a size as possible. Have ready a
pot of boiling water, salted, drop in the potatoes and keep them at a
quick boil until tender. Serve with a batter made by beating to a cream
two tablespoons of butter, one-half tablespoon of lemon juice and one
tablespoon of finely minced parsley; add salt and a dash of cayenne
pepper; spread over the hot potatoes, and it will melt into a delicious
dressing. This is especially nice to serve with fish.

Other Recipes


4 or 5 Parsnips

1/2 oz. Flour

1 teaspoonful Parsley--2d.

1 oz. Butter

1 gill Milk

Pepper and Salt--2d.

Total Cost--4d.

Time--One Hour

Scrape and cut up the parsnips (or cold ones will do). If raw, boil
them in water seasoned with salt for three-quarters of an hour. Make
the butter, flour, and milk into a sauce by directions given, and
season nicely. Stir in the parsley, put in the parsnips, bring to the
boil and simmer for ten minutes. Arrange them on a hot dish, pour the
sauce over, and serve.

Other Recipes


The top or flower of parsley only should be used for frying. Pick it
carefully and rub well in a damp cloth, and then in a dry cloth. Put
into a frying basket and plunge into the fat when the fish, or whatever
it is to be served with, has been fried; leave it in not more than one
minute. Turn it on to some kitchen paper and stand for a minute on the
stove to dry; it is then ready.

Other Recipes
