Recipe: Bacon and Apple Roly-poly

Boil a pound of bacon, (cost twelve cents,) for half an hour; then slice it thin; peel and slice three cents’ worth of apples and the same quantity of onions; make a stiff dough of one pound of flour, (cost four cents,) a teaspoonful of salt, and cold water; roll it out half an inch thick; lay the bacon, apples, and onion all over it, roll it up, tie it tightly in a clean cloth, and boil it about two hours, in plenty of boiling water. Serve it with three cents’ worth of boiled potatoes, or boiled cabbage. The dinner will cost twenty-five cents.
