Check out this dish featured in the aforementioned journal: Fried Squash—“Cut a crook-neck squash in slices and soak them in cold salted water one hour. Wipe them dry, dip them in batter and fry brown in a little butter, or dip them in egg, roll in fine bread crumbs and fry in boiling-hot fat.” Other recipes include: “egg plants, fish cakes, egg salad, devilled almonds, and chocolate cake.” Read the full journal publication here.
