This last week saw the 200th anniversary of the publication of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Over the course of the last few weeks I have spent some time reading about the Austen’s and the period of history in which Jane was alive and thinking of it in contrast to a branch of my own family.
During the course of the research I came across the blog of the Jane Austen museum in Hampshire. One of the treasures on display at the Museum is the Matha Lloyd’s Household book.
Martha was a close friend of Jane’s and Martha’s sister married Jane’s older brother James. Contained within the household book is a series of recipes, household advise and formulas. Also included is this lovely recipe in verse.
