Your reading were well read and Biscuits is PLOK Betty B :thumbs:

I wonder what a hot oven meant in 1913?

Thanks for the history of Crisco TriciaG :D

PLOK :thumbs:

No Crisco in Betty B’s article from 1913- Crisco marketed since 1911

Break open a hot biscuit in which Crisco has been used. You will note a sweet fragrance, which is most inviting. 1922

Can we still reuse Crisco forever?

Betty and Tricia, maybe you two should start a group read of the 1896 Fannie Farmer Boston Cooking School Cookbook? it's available on Google books: https://www.google.com/books/edition/The_Original_Boston_Cooking_school_Cook/OI4_AQAAMAAJ?hl=en&gbpv=1&dq=boston+cooking+school+cookbook&printsec=frontcover. There are some wild wild recipes: Calf's Head a la Terrapin, Broiled or Roasted Plover, and Larded Grouse ( no Crisco yet in 1896).

I do quite a lot of baking and still have Crisco in the pantry but it is not used very often these days...

What's funny is that I have been cooking more with lard and butter the past few years. Going back to the real stuff - LOL!

I listened to the section on Crisco in your solo, Betty. It sounds like it came out of the same advertising department as my section here. :lol:

Thanks Craig. I've fixed the text link for section 8. That is what you were referring to, correct? The rest of the links look OK to me.

Volume 074 was a great collection of readings! As BC, I just want to say thank you to all who participated. :D Also, I wanted to say to those readers, whose contributions weren't mentioned specifically in my summary for the catalog, I didn't forget you! With 21 selections, my blurb ran to three paragraphs, and it was too long to fit the page! :mrgreen: Here is the missing paragraph from the summary:

Praising human resiliency, William James recalls "the rapidity of the improvisation or order out of chaos" in Mental Effects of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake; while Samuel Johnson takes a verbal swing at the rich and powerful who look "with unconcern on a man struggling for life in the water, and when he has reached ground, encumbers him with help." (Letter to Lord Chesterfield, 1755). Tactless types who comment on gray hairs and brand eccentric people as "mad" are skewered in two essays by Anna Mowatt Richie. (Tactless People; Original People). Balancing these negatives is praise for accomplished individuals: James Wilson, Blind Biographer; Japanese writer Madame Yukio Ozaki; and pioneering chemist Agnes Pockels (Surface Tension); followed by a look at communal enterprise in the Salt Mines of Wieliczka.


Thanks, everyone! :clap: Volume 075 is up and running here: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=80057&p=1720169#p1720169
