Chitterlings or Calf's Tripe

Salt and pepper
8 white onions -- (8 to 10)
2 tbs. cream
1 Pinch salt
About 1 tbs. flour
2 pieces buttered toast

As always, we post the title of a recipe as the author gave it. This
one is a tad puzzling though, as "chitlins" is one thing and "tripe"
is something else altogether. Whether

Ms. Leslie means that either item can be cooked in this fashion, or is
using two names for the same thing, we cannot say.

Oh yes..."chitterlings" are intestines, whereas "tripe" is one of the
four stomachs of a cow. If you consider the distinction academic, we
entirely understand.

See that the chitterlings are very nice and white. Wash them, cut them
into pieces, and put them into a stew-pan with pepper and salt to your
taste, and about two quarts of

water. Boil them two hours or more. In the mean time, peel eight or
ten white onions, and throw them whole into a sauce-pan with plenty of
water. Boil them slowly till quite

soft; then drain them in a cullender, and mash them. Wipe out your
sauce-pan, and put in the mashed onions with a piece of butter, two
table-spoonfuls of cream or rich

milk, some nutmeg, and a very little salt. Sprinkle in a little flour,
set the pan on hot coals (keeping it well covered) and give it one
boil up. When the chitterlings are quite

tender all through, take them up and drain them. Place in the bottom
of a dish a slice or two of buttered toast with all the crust cut off.
Lay the chitterlings on the toast, and

send them to table with the stewed onions in a sauce-boat. When you
take the chitterlings on your plate season them with pepper and
vinegar. This, if properly prepared, is

a very nice dish.

Does anyone have a good simple recipe for melva pudding?

From: "Liz Evans"
Subject: Re:Re: Grits Like Popcorn


A reader named Helen replied to a reader named Jo who asked if anyone
knew of a kind of grits that when prepared resembled popcorn per a
memory of one of her

neighbors.... Helen said something about hominy / grits but to my
knowledge and understanding hominy grits are the only kind of grits
there are.... But her preparation was

for canned hominy. Hominy are large kernels of white corn soaked in
lye and swollen as she said, but hominy is hominy and not grits until
it is ground. The two items are

from the same grain but one is hominy and the other is hominy grits.
I have had hominy prepared the way Helen described and it did not look
like or taste like popcorn by

any stretch....
