Notes and Variations

Tasty, but you can feel your arteries harden just inhaling it, though.  Also good for brunch.


Pseudo-period; we found this recipe in a little booklet Sedalia put together from a Twelfth Night feast.  Nothing in here isn't plausible for period, but I have no reason to believe that it is actually a period recipe.
