Justina’s original recipes

Tea and biscuits… make your own favourite brew to drink with these biscuits – the recipes are nearly 150 years old, but I’m sure they will taste nice! I am going to try the caraway biscuits, which despite being sweet might be nice with some strong Cheddar. I wonder who Justina was?

Justina’ sends the following original recipes, and hopes they will be liked : —

Ground Rice Biscuits

  • Take 1 lb. of ground rice, or, as it is sometimes called, rice flour
  • … and mix with it 6 oz. of fresh butter
  • … then add ½ lb. of sugar
  • … beat these well up with the hand
  • … then whisk two eggs –
  • – with a little milk and a pinch of soda
  • Add this to the ground rice, butter, and sugar –
  • – and work into a paste
  • Roll out, out into round cakes, and bake in a moderately quick oven.

Seed Biscuits

  • Take 1 lb. of common flour
  • … mix with it 6 oz. of butter and ½ lb. of sugar
  • … then work in about an ounce of caraway seeds and a pinch of soda
  • Beat up a couple of eggs in sufficient milk to make the above ingredients form a paste
  • Roll out, cut into round cakes, and bake in a rather fast oven
