No gifs today since I was busy being ON THE NEWS!? What?
Kathrine Moermond, the Education and Outreach Coordinator for the Old Capital Museum and I, made a 19th century recipe for Marlborough Pie from a handwritten cookbook in the Szathmary Culinary Collection, transcribed through DIY History. It just so happens the handwritten cookbook was from Alice Eleckta Pickard who was the daughter of the third president of the University of Iowa, Josiah LIttle Pickard.
You can make this recipe for our historic cooking contest at the Iowa State Fair! (see pg. 53 of the pdf in the link).
Best library outreach ever?
