Chosen from Elisabeth’s latest cookbook Preserving, Potting and Pickling: Food from the Store Cupboards of Europe…
This is a nursery recipe from Northamptonshire, popular in the 1930s and perfect in sandwiches for a picnic or high tea.
Elisabeth describes Potting as "the process of sealing meats, fish, poultry, anything perishable, in an earthenware container under a coating of any edible fat. It was a useful method of preserving goods in pre-refrigeration days and provided an alternative to salt-pickling…..(it) produced such delectable results."
