Is This A Delicacy? Or A Remedy?

Today we prepare a delicious dish from the 18th century — a type of food that has been virtually lost, at least in American cuisine. This dish is called a “posset.” While many possets were considered a food for the sick to assist them in their recovery, we thought this recipe was quite tasty and would make a great breakfast food. Enjoy!

A Delicious Pistachio Turnover

Michael Dragoo is back at it! Today he’s helping us make an extremely easy and very delicious Pistachio Turnover — or “Fritter,” as it was called in the 18th Century. The recipe comes from Hannah Glasse’s 1800 Cookbook, “The Complete Confectioner.”

Helpful suggestion: most commercial pistachios are heavily salted. Soaking them in water for 15 minutes prior to mashing or grinding them will diminish some of that saltiness.
