In any event, part of the challenge of 2014 is a week of vintage. I really didn't know what to prepare out of The Inglenook Cook Book, since there are a number of different types of recipes. Mindful of my "diet," and quest to keep things fresh, I caved. Unnecessarily, but I was having the week where my "diet" never makes sense only that being a woman in childbearing years without the child.
I also wanted to keep the ingredients simple and perhaps out of the cabinet for this challenge since I'm sure that's what the women of 1908 would do.
Introducing, Chocolate Fudges from Sister Emma Carstensen, Elgin, Illinois.
|Chocolate Fudges (c) 1908|
Simple right? Way too simple! In my days of making fudge, which weren't many since my family was never big on sweets, always involved using sweetened condensed milk. Now that I know that whipping cream is a good substitute, I can replicate this to a better chocolate (like 67% coco).
In any event, I learned something new from this little venture and hopefully this upcoming week's challenge can pull us through to another vintage week with another book.
Next week, The Republic of Congo...
