    Christmas Cookbooks and Recipes


    Christmas Ornament Christmas is an annual holiday that marks the birth of Jesus. It is celebrated by most (but not all Christians), and has in modern times also become a secular holiday.

    Christmas Day is the date on which the birth of Jesus is marked.
    • For most Christian denominations (and secular celebrations), it is observed on December 25th.

    • The Armenian Apostolic Church observe it on January 6th.

    • Many Eastern Orthodox Churches use the Julian Calendar for calculating the dates. As a result, they celebrate on the Julian Calendar's December 25th, which currently is January 7th in the Gregorian calendar.
    Many special foods are prepared and eaten during the period around Christmas, and there are also many traditions associated with it.

    Some Christmas recipes and dishes include:
    • Barszcz - This Polish dish is the Polish version of borscht. It is a soup made from red beetroot, onions, garlic and other vegetables. Although meats are sometimes added, on Christmas Eve a vegetarian version of soup is eaten with small dumplings (uszka). The dumplings are filled kapusta kiszona (the Polish version of sauerkraut) or mushrooms.

    • Christmas cake - This is a fruitcake originating from British cuisine. There are many different variations on the basic idea, but is usually a rich fruit cake, often covered with marizpan, and then a hard white icing.

    • Christmas pudding - This a traditional British recipe. It is a steamed dessert eaten which is usually eaten on Christmas Day, but because it keeps very well, and maturing is said to improve the flavor, is traditionally prepared many weeks in advance of Christmas. Christmas pudding is made from suet (congealed fat) with dried fruit and nuts mixed in, and alcoholic beverages (such as brandy) are poured into it, in order to add moisture. Christmas pudding is often eaten with brandy butter (a sauce made from unsalted butter, sugar and brandy), cream or custard.

    • Mince pies - This is a traditional British recipe for small pies (about the size of a cupcake). In historical times, actual meat was used in these pies, but today, the pies are filled with minced fruit and nuts (chopped raisins, currants, apricot, cherries, walnuts, etc., with spices in suet). Mince pies are traditionally eaten with brandy butter (a sauce made from unsalted butter, sugar and brandy).

    • Pasulj - This is a traditional Serbian recipe. It is soup made from beans.

    • Pumpkin pie - This is a dessert made from a pie crust filled with a pumpkin-based custard. The custard is usually flavored using spices such as cinnamon, cloves and ginger. Pumpkin pie is usually eaten at Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Halloween, and is traditionally served with whipped cream.

    • Roast chestnuts - Roast chestnuts are a popular dish in the Winter in general, and during the Christmas period in particular.

    • Sarmale - This is a Romanian recipe for cabbage rools. The rolls are stuffed with ground meat, rice and onions, and are often eaten on Christmas Eve and at Easter. Serbian cuisine has a similar dish, known as sarma, which is eaten at the same times of year.

    • Sült - This Estonian dish is jellied meat, and is usually eaten with sauerkraut. Estonians generally eat the dish during the Winter months, but especially at Christmas.

    • Turkey - Roast turkey is very popular in many countries as the main dish of Christmas dinner (the main meal of the day, often eaten at lunch time though).

      Roast Turkey

    • Vánocní cukroví - This is a Czech recipe for cookies. The cookies are usually attractively decorated.

    • Vánocka - This is a Czech recipe. It is a cake made from eggs and butter, and also contains raisins and almonds. Lemon rind and nutmeg are also used to flavor the dough. The dough is then made into braids, these are stacked, and then finally the cake is cooked.

    • Yule log - In some countries, large logs, known as "Yule logs", are burned at Christmas. This tradition dates back to pre-Christian times, when the Winter solstice was known as "Yule". In cookery, Yule logs, are a dessert, usually chocolate flavored, made in the shape of a log, that is inspired by this ancient tradition.

    Historical Christmas Cooking & Baking In America

    By Robert Pelton

    Freedom & Liberty Foundation Press
    Released: 2013-08-27
    Kindle Edition (155 pages)

    Historical Christmas Cooking & Baking In America
     
    Product Description:
    Historical Christmas Cooking and Baking in America is chock full of delightfully delicious cooking ideas favored by many famous families of yesteryear.
    It contains the prized recipes for those Christmas dishes served and eaten by some of the early settlers in the American Colonies.
    Here will be found the favorite Yuletide dishes of some of the heroes of the Revolutionary War.
    You’ll be able to fix and then eat the same things served to those great men who so bravely signed the Declaration of Independence and those involved in writing and signing our great Constitution.
    You’ll be able to sample the identical food eaten at Christmas by those foreign heroes who volunteered to fight and die for our freedom.
    And lastly, you can enjoy sharing an identical Christmas meal with those who wore both the blue and the gray during the War Between the States, or as some unreconstructed Southerners still refer to it, the War of Northern Aggression.
    .Included are recipes for tasty Christmas breads and many other kinds of baked goods, really good meat and poultry dishes, soups and stews and stuffings – and, yes, even pickles as well as loads of other wonderful things.
    Here you’ll also be treated to the Christmas favorites of such historical luminaries as Declaration of Independence signer, Elbridge Gerry, who dearly loved his poultry dishes accompanied by a special sausage stuffing.
    Or the hollandaise sauce enjoyed by John Quincy Adams with his cauliflower.
    And that special Christmas sourdough fruit cake made by the wife of the famed Confederate General, “Fighting Joe” Hooker.
    A unique old-fashioned method for making yeast from grape leaves was handed down by my Great-great grandmother, Huldah Radike Horton.
    This is the recipe she used in making the bread she served to her family every Christmas for many years.
    And it was used to make the bread she served to General Lafayette (1757-1834) when she entertained him at her home in Newburg, New York in 1823.
    Measurements were given in the past in ways that present day cooks wouldn’t be expected to be at all familiar.
    Who today for example when busily scurrying around the kitchen would be able to accurately measure out a teacupful, ½ a tincup, a dessertspoonful or butter the size of an egg when called for in a recipe?
    Now try butter the size of a walnut, a pound of eggs, a kitchencupful, or even a dram of liquid?
    Or how about half a tumbler, a saltspoonful, a gill, wineglassful or a pound of milk?
    Since this would create an insurmountable problem, all the recipes in Historical Christmas Cooking & Baking in America have been carefully updated so that when the recipe is used today it will turn out just as it did for the homemaker who prepared it for her family so many years ago.
    A compilation of the unique measurements used by housewives of the past with their today’s counterparts can be found in Chapter 2 Measurements Used While Cooking and Baking In the Colonies.
    , every recipe found in this unique book was a popular favorite throughout the Christmas holidays in our nation’s long and colorful history.
    Many were coveted within a particular family and handed down from generation to generation.
    Others are historical gems, for they were the inventions of, or the favorites of, some notable family or individual from the past.
    Here they are being presented, for the first time for America’s families of today to have the fun and experience the thrill of cooking and baking.
    And lastly, to thankfully pass a blessing over before eating – be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner – on Christmas Day.
