Recipe: Pork and Onions

Recipe: Cold Bacon and Eggs

An economical way of using bacon and eggs that have been left from a previous meal is to put them in a wooden bowl and chop them quite fine, adding a little mashed or cold chopped potato, and a little bacon gravy, if any was left. Mix and mould it into little balls, roll in raw egg and cracker crumbs, and fry in a spider the same as frying eggs; fry a light brown on both sides. Serve hot. Very appetizing.

Recipe: Breakfast Bacon

Lay slices of bacon close together on a fine wire broiler, place broiler over a dripping pan, and bake in a hot oven about ten minutes or until bacon is brown and crisp. Avoid burning. Save fat for cooking.

Recipe: Baked Ham

Another very appetizing way in which to cook an entire HAM is to bake it. This involves both cooking in water on the top of the stove and baking in the oven. While this recipe, as well as those preceding, specifies HAM, it should be remembered that shoulder may be cooked in the same ways.

For baked HAM, proceed in the way just explained for boiled HAM, but boil only 12 minutes for each pound. Take the HAM from the kettle and allow it to cool enough to permit it to be handled. Remove the skin. Then place the HAM in a roasting pan and pour over it 1 cupful of water. Bake 12 minutes for each pound and baste frequently while baking. Serve hot or cold.

Recipe: Bake Slice of Ham

Have the butcher cut the HAM in one-inch thick slices. Trim and then cut around the edges every two inches apart to prevent curling. Place on a baking dish and pour over the HAM

  • One cup of water
  • Two tablespoons of syrup

Bake in slow oven 25 minutes.

Recipe: To Cure Hams and Bacon (A Prize Recipe)

For each hundred pounds of HAMs, make a pickle of ten pounds of salt, two pounds of brown sugar, two ounces of saltpetre, one ounce of red pepper, and from four to four and a half gallons of water, or just enough to cover the HAMs, after being packed in a water-tight vessel, or enough salt to make a brine to float a fresh egg high enough, that is to say, out of water. First rub the HAMs with common salt and lay them into a tub. Take the above ingredients, put them into a vessel over the fire, and heat it hot, stirring it frequently; remove all the scum, allow it to boil ten minutes, let it cool and pour over the meat. After laying in this brine five or six weeks, take out, drain and wipe, and smoke from two to three weeks. Small pieces of bacon may remain in this pickle two weeks, which would be sufficient.
