Recipe Attempts:

The recipes are in their original form using ingredients and techniques available at the time. This week, experiment with as many of the recipes as you can. The challenge here is that sometimes quantities and directions are missing. Many times the writer assumes the person making the recipes understands a standard cooking practice for the times. To carry out some of these recipes you will have to be creative and fill in the blanks. Please share your experiences in exploring the recipes with the Facebook group. Take pictures and share what you did (especially at points where a quantity or method is missing) or would do differently than the written recipe.
