Valentines Day

Posted by Valerie on December 20, 2009

Tomato Aspic

(Nell, Jaci’s mom would sometimes serve this at her fancy luncheons in Scranton)

1 T. Gelatin or Agar Flakes (Dissolved in cold water below)
1/2 C. Cold Water
2 C. Tomato Juice (heat 1 C. & add to Gelatin mix)
Stir until dissolved before adding the remaining cold Tomato Juice & seasoning
1 t. Horseradish
Dash Worstershire Sauce

Cream Cheese rolled into small balls
Pecans (chopped for coating cream cheese balls)

Drop into Tomato mixture & refrigerate 4-6 hrs. in individual servings or one large bowl.


Boston Brown Bread

The bread is available to buy in a can at the grocery store.
Slice & serve with cream cheese sandwich style with the one you love.

Or make your own Boston Brown Bread:

1 C. Cornmeal
2 C. Graham Meal
1 t. salt
1 1/2 t. soda
3/4 C. Molasses
1-pint sour milk (or buttermilk)

Mix meal salt & soda well together, add the molasses & sour milk; mix well, divide in three; place in greased molds (cans work well in a tall pan) & steam one & one-half hours.
