(The Whole Art Of Carving.) - (The Most Valuable And Original Receipts)

The cook usually divides the body before it is sent to the table, and

garnishes the dish with the jaws and ears. The first thing is to

separate the shoulder from the carcass on one side, and then the leg,

according to the direction given by the dotted line a, b, c. The

ribs are then to be divided into about two helpings, and an ear or jaw

presented with them, and plenty of sauce. The joints may either be

divided into two each, or pieces may be cut from them. The ribs are

reckoned the finest part, but some people prefer the neck, and between

the shoulders.

and stitch it in a pudding cloth. Then put the bones and cuttings
into a stewpan with bits of bacon and veal steak cut up, two bay

From MRS. MIRA B. F. LADD, of New Hampshire, Lady Manager.
Parboil one pint of oysters in their own liquor until they are plump.
Drain thoroughly and have your cracker crumbs and white sauce ready.
Put a layer of oysters on a platter, then the white sauce over them,
and a layer of the crumbs on top. Bake about twenty minutes or until
they are brown. For this quantity of oysters use a cup of cracker or
bread crumbs and about one-third of a cup of butter, melted and
stirred into the crumbs. To make the white sauce, take two
tablespoonfuls of butter, one pint of milk, two heaping tablespoonfuls
of flour, one-half teaspoonful of salt and one-half saltspoonful of
pepper. Heat the milk. Put the butter in a granite saucepan and when
it bubbles stir in the dry flour very quickly until well mixed. Pour
on one-third of the milk, let it boil up and thicken, then add slowly
the rest of the milk. It should be free from lumps before you put in
the last of the milk. Let it boil a little, then add the pepper and
salt; also a tablespoonful of lemon juice and a little celery salt.

Stewed Pigeons


For two pair of pigeons stuff first with bread, summer savory, butter,

pepper, salt. Put eight or nine slices of fat pork, in an iron pot to

fry, until the pork is well browned, then take it out and put in the

pigeons and let brown thoroughly, keep turning to prevent burning. Then

add one pint of stock, season if required, put back slices of pork and

let stew for an hour and a half (at least) quietly. If gravy is not

thick enough, add a tablespoon of brown flour. About quarter of an hour

before done, put in a can of green peas--Then serve.


Can be prepared in the same manner as the above for stewed pigeons, with

the addition of spices: cloves a few, and a little more of cinnamon.
