Mrs Crocombe Receives a “Taste of America" Food Parcel - The Victorian Way & Townsends Collaboration

  • katma 22 Eki 2018
  • Mrs Crocombe has received a parcel from Mr Townsend, including the ingredients and recipe for making Indian Pudding.
    See the parcel being put together on the Townsends TRclips channel:
    A quart of milk
    1 1/3 cups cornmeal
    4 eggs
    6 ounces of dried blueberries
    3 ounces of butter
    Gently heat the milk and add the cornmeal while stirring continuously. Stir until the mixture begins to thicken.
    Let stand until cool enough to add the eggs and butter. Add spices to taste. I recommend a bit of ginger and cinnamon - and don't forget the nutmeg.
    Add sugar to taste.
    Add blueberries.
    Pour into a well greased bowl or mould.
    Bake in a middling quick oven for about an hour. Serve warm or cold with a pudding sauce or maple syrup. (We recommend setting your oven to 160° Celsius | 320° Fahrenheit | Gas Mark 3 - but make sure you keep an eye on it).

    To the staff of English Heritage - A sincere thank you for the videos that look into a special time in our history. Even as an American I have enjoyed everything presented in the videos. Mrs. Crocombe must have been very special both in person and for the actor someone to play as. I enjoy the history, the food prep, and even the mannerism that these special actors present. To be blunt, we can benefit from some of those lessons in today society with courtesy and respect. I would be fascinated to see what our character Mrs Crocombe would have thought of the technology and development in food preparation and presentation today.

    I just wondered why Mrs Crocombe didn't use the word Receipt in stead of recipe? Since it was common in 1895. I will ask Mr Townsend the same thing.

    Dear Mrs. Crocombe,
    I regret I must inform you of a small but rather serious breach of etiquette that has occurred with this video. It is my firm belief that this breach was but an unintended oversight, yet knowing of your attention to detail and your strict adherence to propriety, I would be remiss if I did not call it to your attention.
    During crossovers, it is customary to include within the description a link to the video, or at least to the channel, of one's collaborator. I fear I cannot find such a link to Townsend's channel in this video's description. Again, I am sure this was simply an accident, as I had noted links to Townsend's channel in your previous crossover video. Indeed, I am sure the blame, if indeed "blame" is the accurate word to use in this instance, falls to the Poster of the Videos and not to your good self.
    I would be most obliged, then, if you might pass this message on to the party who is able to remedy this unfortunate situation. I have always found your videos to be most entertaining in addition to educational, and I am honored to offer aid in upholding the sterling quality of this channel.
