Cold Beef Stewed with Apples

Melissa is thrilled when John finally invites her to a picnic away from the mansion, just the two of them. Of course, John feels Bryga packed enough food to feed them for a week, but even that careless remark couldn’t completely dampen Melissa’s excitement of being alone with John.

From Miss Beecher’s domestic receiptbook: designed as a supplement to her Treatise on domestic economy.

Why the giant cookbook cover at the bottom? Because Facebook won't let me attach the cover in the "upload" field anymore. So, this was my way of trying to override it. I failed. :(


Cold Beef Stewed with Apples

Beef, cut into thin slices
Apple, sliced fine
Onion (optional)

Rub a stew pan with butter and put in sliced beef with pepper, salt, and apple; some would add a little onion. Cover it tight and stew until tender.
