Hospital Gingerbread- Soldiers Fighting For Food
Gingerbread was a favorite when it was available, and a comfort food often offered to wounded soldiers in field hospitals. One diary entry of a Civil War nurse described how, after spending the day bathing and bandaging soldiers wounds, she found a sutler’s stand and bought a supply of gingerbread which she called “a singular food for sick men.”
However, Mrs. Levins pointed out, the conflict’s food history “was not all about goodness and light. During the war the four items that caused the most food-related fights within the ranks were bread, meat, apples and pickles. Documents record that soldiers were court martialed, beaten almost to death, and even shot over apples as they went foraging. These were desperate times when large numbers of men often lived just this side of starvation for long periods of time.”

There’s a artisan popsicle business here in Atlanta called “King of Pops”. I guess someone is being funny with “King of Poops”.

St. Patrick’s day brunch: The Marrows Ginger Molasses Cake via the NYT

I emailed mocahill because I do not bake very well. Improvisation is a large part of what makes my dishes unique. And baking does not like my house team. -rimshot-

Mo started off with emptying a bottle of oatmeal stout into a sauce pan with molasses. It made pretty swirly patterns and bubbled up when they were combined. Meanwhile ramseyesscom sifted the dry ingredients together. A stand mixer is highly recommended for this recipe because you are required to mix for a total of 15 minutes as you add ingredients. I really loved the part where Mo buttered the inside of a bundt pan and smattered coarse sugar into it. It has a sugar crust with hefty, dense bite with a ginger kick. Well worth the 55 minute cooking time!

*By the way, you live in the New York area and can bake—-let’s be friends. I’ll trade you slow cooked meats!

The Porterhouse Rules http://ift.tt/Qbmb6e Cook’s Country senior editor Bryan Roof slices into the tenderloin portion of an extra-thick-cut porterhouse steak cooked by test cook Morgan Bolling, right, in order to check its doneness during a test to see which surface treatments give these behemoth beef cuts the best crust without resulting in an overcooked interior. Looks like this one’s right on the money! Keep an eye out for the final technique in an upcoming issue of Cook’s Country Magazine.
