@Regrann from @americanantiquarian - AAS will be closing at 5:00 today and will reopen on Monday, following the Thanksgiving weekend. But don't worry -- this post from Eliza Ann Wheeler's, "The Frugal Housekeeper's Kitchen Companion, or Guide to Economical Cookery: Containing Instructions in the Art of Cooking Every Kind of Meats and Vegetables" will helpfully cover any questions about carving the turkey tomorrow. Our earliest edition is 1847, but this handy diagram and step-by-step instructions appear in the 1854 printing published in New York. Wheeler dedicated her text to "those American housewives who are not ashamed of economy." Unofficial poll: how many of you leave the feet on during roasting??? #cookbooks #iglibraries #poultry #carvingstationoldschool #libraryturkeytrot #woodcutwednesday@pochove - #regrann
