Victorian Food Recipes

Here at The Judge's Lodging we love Victorian food and cooking. Occasionally we even hold large Georgian & Victorian 5 course dinners, with around fifty dishes in each.  Don't get the Curator talking about Victorian jellies - she's made loads and collects moulds. We're going to give our old ice-cream maker a go some time too (we're afraid we usually cheat by using a freezer). So, we love it so much we thought we'd share some of our favourite recipes with you. All of these are ones we have made ourselves. You'll also find some more recipes in our learning resource The Great Victorian Picnic.

Banana Cream Ice

Peel 6 ripe bananas and pound them to a pulp, add the juice of 2 lemons and a glass of curacoa. Pass through a tammy cloth and finish with 1 pint of sweetened cream or custard.   Mrs Marshall

 

JL Note: When we've made this we have added a little banana flavouring as well, as the bananas themselves do not make it terribly 'banana-y'
