Join us on our journey of creating 1800 and early 1900 recipes in a modern farmhouse kitchen. And learn to cook out of a cookbook from when my Great Great Grandmother was providing for her family. As we create, know that most recipes do not list out all of the ingredients and at the time, there were no temperature gauges on ovens or stoves.

BLUEBERRY CAKE.
Three pints of sifted flour; 1 cupful of sugar; one-half cupful of butter; 1 pint of sweet milk; 2 eggs; 1 pint of blueberries; 1 teaspoonful of soda in the milk and 2 teaspoonfuls of cream of tartar in the flour. Rub the butter, sugar, and eggs together, then add the milk with soda, then the flour with cream of tartar, and lastly, stir the blueberries in gently,
and bake three-quarters of an hour in two long pans. Very nice.

I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of my Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.
