Oops! I forgot to give y’all a recipe yesterday. To make up for it, I am going to give you two – one that might actually taste good and one I don’t think you’re kids would dare eat.
Brisket of Beef; 6 cloves; 2 carrots; 2 onions; pepper
Put the meat into the pot with water enough to cover it. Put the cloves into the water. Let it boil 5 hours. 1/2 hour before it is done put in the carrots and onions cut up fine. When done there must be enough water left for gravy. Put in pepper.
Boiled Calf’s Head
Head and ligts with a piece of salt pork boil 3 hours. The water should boil when they are put into the pot. The tongue boil 2 1/2 hours, the heart and brains boil 1 1/4 hours. The brains tie up in a cloth with some sage and chop them together when boiled and mix them with melted butter for sauce. Liver boil 1/2 hour.
