Watched a fascinating show last night. Fannie Farmers last supper. If you have Netflix or can find it some other way give it a view.
In the show they cook a 12 course Victorian era meal all on a wood fired cook stove. several of the courses contained "jellies". All made by boiling down calves heads . They tried to stick to the traditional preparation of meal as close as possible. They did make some changes and pointe them out and why they did.
