PEPPER POT(Soups) - (The Jewish Manual)
Cut small pieces of any vegetables, and add pieces of smoked or salt
beef, and also of any cold poultry, roast beef or mutton, stew all
these together in two or three quarts of water, according to the
quantity of meat, &c. It must be seasoned highly with whole peppers,
allspice, mace, Jamaica pickles, and salt; it must be thoroughly
stewed, and served, without straining, in a tureen.
PHILADELPHIA "PEPPER POT"This recipe for far-famed "Philadelphia Pepper Pot" was given Mary by
a friend living in the Quaker City, a good cook, who vouched for its
The ingredients consist of the following:
1 knuckle of veal.
2 pounds of plain tripe.
2 pounds of honeycomb tripe.
1 large onion,
1 bunch of pot-herbs.
4 medium-sized potatoes.
1 bay leaf--salt and cayenne pepper to season.
1/2 pound of beef suet--and flour for dumplings.
The day before you wish to use the "Pepper Pot" procure 2 pounds of
plain tripe and 2 pounds of honeycomb tripe. Wash thoroughly in cold
water place in a kettle. Cover with cold water and boil eight hours;
then remove tripe from water, and when cold cut into pieces about 3/4
of an inch square. The day following get a knuckle of veal, wash and
cover with cold water--about three quarts--bring slowly to the
simmering point, skimming off the scum which arises, simmer for three
hours. Remove the meat from the bones, cut into small pieces, strain
broth and return it to the kettle. Add a bay leaf, one large onion,
chopped, simmer one hour; then add four medium-sized potatoes, cut
like dice, and add to the broth. Wash a bunch of pot-herbs, chop
parsley (and add last), rub off the thyme leaves, cut red pepper in
half and add all to broth; then add meat and tripe and season with
salt; _if liked hot_, use a pinch of cayenne pepper. For the
dumplings, take 1 cup of beef suet, chopped fine, 2 cups flour, pinch
of salt, mix well together and moisten with enough cold water to allow
of their being molded or rolled into tiny dumplings, the size of a
small marble. Flour these well to prevent sticking together. When all
are prepared drop into soup, simmer a few minutes, add parsley and
serve at once.

West India Soup Called Pepper PotA small knuckle of veal and a piece of beef of about three pounds, seven
or eight pounds of meat in all; potherbs as for any other soup. When the
soup is skimmed and made, strain it off. The first ingredient you add to
the soup must be some dried ocre (a West India vegetable), the quantity
according to your judgment. It is hard and dry, and therefore requires
a great deal of soaking and boiling. Then put in the spawn of the
lobsters you intend for your soup, first pounding it very fine, and
mixing it by degrees with a little of your soup cooled, or it will be
lumpy, and not so smooth as it should be. Put it into the soup-pot, and
continue to stir some time after it is in. Take about two middling
handfuls of spinach and about six hearts of the inside of very nice
greens; scald both greens and spinach before you put them to the soup,
to take off the rawness; the greens require most scalding. Squeeze them
quite dry, chop and put them into the soup; then add all the fat and
inside egg and spawn you can get from the lobsters, also the meat out of
the tails and claws. Add the green tops only of a large bundle of
asparagus, of the sort which they call sprew-grass, previously scalded;
a few green peas also are very good. After these ingredients are in, the
soup should no more than simmer; and when the herbs are sufficiently
tender it is done enough. This soup is not to be clear, on the contrary
thick with the lobster, and a perfect mash with the lobster and greens.
You are to put in lobster to your liking; I generally put in five or
six, at least of that part of them which is called fat, egg, and inside
spawn, sufficient to make it rich and good. It should look quite yellow
with this. Put plenty of the white part also, and in order that none of
the goodness of the lobsters should be lost, take the shells of those
which you have used, bruise them in a mortar, and boil them in some of
the broth, to extract what goodness remains; then strain off the liquor
and add it to the rest. Scoop some potatoes round, half boiling them
first, and put into it. Season with red pepper. Put in a piece of nice
pickled pork, which must be first scalded, for fear of its being too
salt; stew it with the rest and serve it.
