CD-ROM (Non-Audio)



I am the only authorized distributor of ohiocountryboy0 branded legal reproductions. This listing is for a legal reproduction.

This listing is for a CD copy of the 1846 edition of The Virginia Housewife: or, Methodical Cook, by Mrs. Mary Randolph, which was originally copyrighted in 1831.  This CD is in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format.  Each chapter is bookmarked, so you can quickly find the section you want to read.  You no longer have to worry about getting pages damaged or dirty.  You can simply print out any and all pages you like if you want a hard copy to use as a recipe while cooking.  180 pages.  Photo is a sample scan for illustrative purposes.

This book tells all about cooking like our ancestors did it, back when food was prepared from wild game and herbs, and no parts were wasted.  There are recipes from salting and curing meat to collared calf's head dishes to making molasses beer.  You get 17 soup recipes, 17 beef recipes, 23 veal recipes, 4 lamb recipes, 12 mutton recipes, 18 pork recipes, 36 fish recipes, 56 poultry & etc. recipes, 16 recipes for sauces, 51 vegetables recipes, 46 puddings recipes, 61 cakes recipes, 19 cold creams recipes, 23 recipes for preserves, 24 recipes for pickling, and 33 recipes for cordials & etc.  You will be getting over 450 recipes from the early to mid 1800's.
