A little bit of Rumpolt
(Nov. 18, 2009)
(stuffed vegetables/fruits are also seen in various other manuscripts and books both earlier and later in date then this)
Took a dive into Rumpolt the other day but never posted pictures, not even on the website yet
Yes, the carrots are orange, it's what I had and are suitably period enough, lets just say I can make it work.
But, the real reason why I used them is because they were just really big and thought, hey... I can likely stuff these!
See! Apparently they are supposed to be yellow inside... kinda hard to do with meat and currents.
These are fine on their own but begged for a starch... Rice cooked in Beef Broth went really well with this. I think it would look really pretty served up on top of the rice, if at least for personal dining.
Tried another dish with the carrot I scooped out as to not waste. Same book... basically chopped roots seasoned with scalded milk... it is okay enough but not very exciting (not that I expected it to be)
