As part of homeschool this year I decided to read aloud “The Work and the Glory” books, which is a series about the restoration of the gospel, and also about a fictitious family in the early 1800s.
In this book we have learned a lot about life back then including many descriptions of chores and machinery. Today in our reading they mention “Apple Cheese” which is made almost entirely out of apple pulp. I have never heard of such a thing and decided to look it up. There is surprisingly little about it! I found one recipe published in a California newspaper from 1880. The directions are not the same as the ones in the book, but it’s as close as I could get from searching for 20 minutes online.
Turns out Apple Cheese is not cheese at all!
Also included in the newspaper was a recipe for Apple Fritters. Yum…
I think I might make both of these sometime soon since it’s apple season!
