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.

Ginger & Orange Water Ice
Pound 8 ounces of preserved ginger, mix it with one quart of orange ice water; pass it through a tammy and freeze. To make orange ice water - 1 pint of boiling water poured onto the peel of 8 oranges, half a pound of loaf sugar; when cool, mix with the juice of 6 oranges; add 6 drops of orange essence; tammy or strain through a sieve and freeze.
