More Housekeeping Hints: Circa 1965

March 29, 2017

Like Apicius before them, The Portuguese American Federation, a few centuries later, packed their cookbook with a robust “hints” section. No housekeeper, after all, should be caught with lumpy frosting or sad egg whites.

If such perfectionism is opposed to my own kitchen philosophy, the sheer variety of these pro-tips make them an entertaining read.

  • I love “hints” like this. Rolling raisins in flour to keep from sinking to bottom…..a few drops of vinegar takes the graininess out of frosting…….new ones for me and I hope to remember to use them.
