TROVE TUESDAY...








8TH OCTOBER, 2016 ... FOOD FOR THOUGHT

Looking through TROVE, I often come across some very old recipes .. some are familiar, with maybe slight variations for today's tastes... others, well, not exactly on my Menu. These are from 100 years ago, made without all the clever kitchen utensils we have today.

 Which of these appeal to you?




Examiner (Launceston, Tas. : 1900 - 1954), Saturday 22 April 1916, page 2 

Apple Snow: - Take two or three large apples, the whites of two eggs, and two heaped tablesponfuls of castor sugar. Make a stiff puree of the apples, and allow it to cool. Whip the white of the egg quite firm, then put into it a dessertspoonful of sugar. Next add a spoonful of puree, and so on, alternately until all the ingredients are mixed. then continue to beat the whole until it's bulk is almost doubled, and heap it into a pretty dish.

 22ND NOVEMBER, 2016  BEHIND THE NAMES


The Courier-Mail , Brisbane, Tue 28 Oct 1947  Page 10 




The above Funeral Notice is for my husband's maternal grandfather, Ralph Percival Taylor, known as Perc or Percy...

He was born in Brisbane, on the 5th May, 1889, to Mark Taylor and Ellen Wetheridge James. He was an amateur wrestler of note, a builder and a very talented artist sketch. He married Evelyn Mary Grace on the 30th Dec, 1914. 

They went on to have four daughters...

Death Certificate 1947/014049...Qld.
cause of death.... brain injury, taumatic (sic) subarachnoid, haemorrhage, fractured skull, Colles fracture.. died in Royal Brisbane Hospital after an accident at work, when he fell two stories through a roof of a building he was working on.. He passed away four days after the accident, on the 26th Oct., 1947. It was said that it was his strength and fitness that kept him alive that long.


Though I've had the notice for some time, I hadn't gone through it all in detail, it had been one of those 'one day' jobs.. On looking through the list of names, far more than most of us include today, I was able to identify most but not all... Seems I now have another lot to research...

  1. Apple Snow! I used to make this when I was a kid. Loved it then - not sure I would now though.
