Fearless Females Blog Post: March 7 – Favorite Female Ancestor – Prompts for Women’s History Month

I want to point out a series of daily blogging prompts entitled Fearless Females created by Lisa Alzo of The Accidental Genealogist blog in honor of Women’s History Month which starts today, 1 March 2010.

Here are the prompts – consider honoring your female ancestors by posting at your genealogy or family history blog!

* March 7 — Share a favorite recipe from your mother or grandmother’s kitchen. Why is this dish your favorite? If you don’t have one that’s been passed down, describe a favorite holiday or other meal you shared with your family.

A random recipe from my mothers files: All hand written.

Apple Crisp:

Start apples (1 gl)

1c – sugar

1 tsp cinnamon

3/4 c flour

1/s c water

7 tbsp butter

Butter blsq (sic) pan or casserole. Put apples in layers with cinnamon covering them. Add water. Mix flour and sugar and work the butter in with your finger tips. Spread it over the apples evenly, pattint it down a little. Bake in 400 (degree) oven uncovered and bake fabout 3/4 hour. Serve with cream.

Now, keep in mind that we lived on an orchard, so we started by going outside to Pick ‘um ourselves. Didn’t have to go shopping for them. Fresh, off the tree, apples. Preservatives Not Included.

I am not sure, but I think the recipe was from my grandmother, my mother’s mother.

Since we still have snow around, and I remember doing this as a kid:

Snow Ice Cream:

1/2 c sugar

1/4 c milk or cream

1 eff

1 tsp. vanilla

Beat egg till foamy. Add Sugar. Beat add mile and vanilla. Add snow until thick.
