Kentucky Chrimsel


  • 2 1/2 cups of meal
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 kitchen-spoon of goose fat
  • 1 kitchen-spoon of beef fat
  • 4 apples
  • spices according to taste
  • 1 glass of wine, if convenient
  • cranberries or any fruit


Put the meal in a bowl with salt, pepper, ground, clove, allspice, and cinnamon mixed into it; peel and grate the apples, melt the fat and mix, put in eggs and then stir in the sugar which has been boiled with water to a thin syrup and cooled off. Hollow out two pieces, put cranberries or any fruit between them; form into balls the size of a medium apple, and bake them on a well-greased pie-plate for about one hour.
