STEWED OYSTERS...."First Lady" MARTHA WASHINGTON'S RECIPE
Nancy J. Patrykus
The Washington State Centennial Cookbook "VINTAGE VITTLES" 1989
This recipe has been passed on and on..... and on to me.
A very old recipe, you can tell by the language.
I think it is time to share, and pass it on again.
Martha married Col. George Washington in 1759 who was to become the Father of our country and our first American President. Martha of course became our very first "First Lady"
She was said to personally supervise the kitchen staff, and all her recipes were hand written by her.
- whole onion
- whole peppers
- whole mace
- sifted ginger
