Overview and metadata sections
Small leather volume with detached covers and ruled pages containing recipes kept by Marianne Kimball during the nineteenth century. Written on the first page is "Marianne Kimball's recipe book--Economy is wealth." Recipes included in the volume are for biscuits, cakes, jams, meat dishes, and puddings. There are several recipes using apples. Some recipes begin with town names such as Salem pumpkin pudding, Concord cake, and Tunbridge cake suggesting Kimball may have lived in New England. Recipes for currant wine, potted pigeon, sage pudding and Indian pudding are included. Two recipes, short gingerbread and pickled walnuts, have been crossed out in pencil. A recipe for steamed apple pudding written in a different hand has been laid in the volume.
