Update of "23 German Mushroom Recipes", 1350-1580
- Hi, all:
I have updated "Twenty-Three German Mushroom Recipes", 1350-1580, in Dar Anahita, my website:
15 Recipes from Marx Rumpolt, 16th c., and 8 from several earlier sources
Das buoch von guoter spise, c. 1350 - 2 recipes;
Mondseer Kochbuch, Codex vind. 4995; 15th c. - 1 recipe;
Das Kochbuch aus dem Wiener Dorotheenkloster, Codex vind. 2897, 15th c. - 2 recipes;
Rheinfrankisches Kochbuch, c. 1445 - 1 recipe;
Kochbuch der Handschrift, UB Basel D II 30 - 2 recipes (one of which is similar to a recipe in Meister Eberhard, mid-15th c.)
The update is the addition of the names of 4 types of mushrooms whose identities neither i nor my German-speaking proofreaders -- one of whom is actually German, hi, Giano! :-) -- knew when i first put the translations on-line.
I had updated two of them last year or the year before, but i didn't put out a notice, so it's probable that some who'd visited the page back them were not aware of that. Then this year, thanks to the work Katherine (wheezul) i now have two more names.
Only one mystery mushroom remains, Stockschwamme, Rumpolt recipes 198 & 199 on page R155a.
Additionally, i'm not certain which mushroom is described as white and bitter, Rumpolt #196, on the same page mentioned above.
And i will note here that one of the recipes actually includes no real mushrooms, but describes how to create faux mushrooms in a season (Christmastide) in which one would be less likely to be able to find them: Kochbuch der Handschrift, UB Basel D II 30, Recipe 31, "A food of morels for Weinnachten/Christmas Season"
Also,the webpage is at a new location, in case you bookmarked it, linked above.
My deepest thanks to everyone who has helped with this project over the years.
