More Stewed Pears

Been busy. Really, really busy. Two shifts for Sweet Daughter, three linen shirts, all hand-finished, leather binding on my stays, and tonight I'm trying to get my documentation together for the cooking competition at MTA this weekend. While looking through the 1781 version of Hannah Glass, I saw the "Pears Stewed Purple" recipe that I am NOT using.

  2. It's a "slow fire". Look carefully at the "long" s. There's no cross piece like the f has. I don't even notice anymore ... my brain just sees it as an "s" or an "f".

    A slow fire isn't very hot.
