Crookneck, or Winter Squash Pudding


  • 1 good squash
  • 6 large apples
  • 6 or 7 spoonsful of dry bread or biscuit
  • 1/2 pint milk or cream
  • 2 spoons of rose-water
  • 2 spoons of wine
  • 5 or 6 eggs beaten and strained
  • nutmeg
  • salt
  • sugar to your taste
  • 1 spoon flour


Core, boil and skin the squash, and bruize it well; take the apples, pared, cored, and stewed tender, mix together; add the dry bread or biscuit, rendered fine as meal, the milk or cream, rose-water, wine, eggs, and nutmeg, salt and sugar to your taste, the flour, beat all smartly together, bake.

The above is a good receipt for Pompkins, Potatoes or Yams, adding more moistening or milk and rose water, and to the two latter a few black or Lisbon currants, or dry whortleberries scattered in, will make it better.
