Samp Cakes Over An Open Fire

Jon is once again transported once again back to 1836. Duncan Mckinnon joins us today in Prairietown, part of Conner Prairie Interactive History Park, in Fishers, Indiana. He has taken time out of his day to show us how to make “Samp Cakes”. This is such a simple recipe that uses flour, water, and whatever fruit you feel would add flavor to this little dish that could be made on the trail with little trouble.

Ice Cream In The 18th Century?

In today’s episode, Jon is transported once again back to 1836. Mrs. Curtis is a delightful long-time resident of Prairietown, part of Conner Prairie Interactive History Park, in Fishers, Indiana. She has kindly taken time from her busy preparations to share with Jon an amazing recipe for “Parmesan Iced Cream” that dates back to the 18th century.

This is a savory dessert that is an absolute perfect base for your favorite fruit compote! Oh my…

Pork a la Normand At Conner Prairie

In today’s episode, Jon is transported back to 1836 as he visits the folks once again at Prairietown, part of Conner Prairie Interactive History Park in Fishers, Indiana. Mrs. Barker (portrayed by historical interpreter Kim McCann) takes no guff from Jon regarding the appearance of this dish. While it wasn’t the “purdiest” thing we’ve ever eaten here, it may have been one of the tastiest! There was none left by the time Aaron and Kevin finished breaking down the equipment!

1796 Pound Cakes!

Today’s recipe is for a traditional “Pound Cake.” This comes from Amelia Simmons’s 1796 cookbook, “American Cookery.” While it’s called a cake, there are clues in the text that this was intended to be made into something more like a cookie or even a cupcake. This is a delicious dish — one we highly recommend it!

Delicious Cornmeal Pancakes From The 18th Century

Today’s recipe is from Amelia Simmons’ 1796 cookbook, “American Cookery.” These delicious pancakes were called “Indian Slapjacks” because the recipe used cornmeal (called “Indian corn” in the 18th century) in addition to wheat flour. This dish is so easy to make. We highly recommend it!

A 200-Year Old Chicken Salad Recipe!

Did you know they made chicken salad over 200 years ago? This recipe comes from Maria Rundell’s 1808 cookbook, “A New System of Domestic Cookery.” The parsley and a hint of lemon gives this dish a very refreshing taste, and surprisingly, the anchovies aren’t overwhelmingly strong, but rather they add the perfect balance. …Such a simple dish with a huge fresh summertime flavor!
