The following is an extract taken from a new publication called "Home Economics" which reintroduces readers to all of our Grandparents thrifty tips, advice, delicious recipes, money-saving, time-saving techniques.
This is the art – and, more importantly – the science of housekeeping, more relevant then ever before in these cash-strapped times.
Fish spoil readily. In fact, changes causing spoilage take place more rapidly in fish than in any other food.
Tests for freshness are:-
Because fish contains only a small amount of connective tissue, it is not
tough and may be baked or broiled in an uncovered pan like tender cuts of
may be cooked in water. To prevent it from falling apart, it may be
tied loosely in cheesecloth.
This publication maybe small and the language a little outdated on occasions but it contains a wealth of useful information: a practical guide to keeping house and home together on a budget and making the most of what you have without spending a fortune.
The charming, practical advice speaks to each and every home maker and combined with vintage illustrations, ‘how-to’ diagrams, and clear, precise instructions it would make a wonderful gift for anyone involved in running a home.
