  Bob Evans Dinner Rolls

  2 pkg. active dry yeast
  2 C. milk, scalded, cooled to lukewarm, divided
  1/4 C. sugar
  2 tsp. salt
  2 eggs, beaten
  Scant 1/4 C. vegetable shortening or margarine
  About 5 C. flour
  Melted butter

  Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup milk. Stir in remaining milk, the sugar, 
  salt, eggs, shortening and 5 cups flour. Beat until smooth, adding 
  more flour as needed to make the dough easy to handle.

  Turn dough onto lightly floured board and knead until smooth and 
  elastic, about 5 minutes. Place in greased bowl and turn greased 
  side up. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled.

  Shape into rolls. Dip in melted butter. Place in greased muffin cups 
  or 3 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Let rise again, then bake 
  at 325F for 20-30 minutes. Brush again with melted butter.

Hello Eva,

It seems to me that one should be able to buy these at a gourmet shop. However, I did not find them for sale anywhere on the Internet. Below is the only recipe that I could locate.

Phaed

Chestnuts in brandy-vanilla syrup

Makes 2 quarts (8 8 oz. jars)

3 lb raw fresh chestnuts
2 c. firmly packed brown sugar
4 c. water
1 vanilla bean, split lengthwise
1 c. homemade brandy vanilla OR brandy

Cut an x on the flat side of each chestnut, and roast them in batches
in the microwave. Peel, keeping the nuts as whole as possible.

Combine the sugar and water over low heat, stirring until the sugar is
dissolved. Raise the heat and bring to a boil. Add the nuts and, if the
brandy is not already vanilla infused, the vanilla bean. Bring it to a
boil again, then remove it from the heat and let it cool. Cover and
allow to steep overnight. Bring it to a boil again, then distribute the
nuts into sterilized 8 oz. jars with a slotted spoon. Divide the brandy
(We used vanilla-infused brandy) among the jars, adding syrup to each
jar to cover the nuts.

Put the lids on the jars and process 50 minutes in a water bath.

Chicken Vegetable Bake

  Hi,

  I had a Better Homes & Garden or Bettie Crocker Cookbook that had a 
  recipe for "Chicken Vegetable Bake"
  You brown the chicken and then make a sauce with the drippings using 
  concentrated frozen orange juice.  Then you put the chicken, carrots, 
  onions and sauce in a dutch oven and bake it.

  Can you find that recipe for me.

  I used to make it for my family and they loved it.

  Thank you for your help.

  Thank you.  Debbie

Norwegian Potato Sausage

From: "C C" 
To: phaedrus
Subject: Norwegian recipe called "jewk"
Date: Monday, April 21, 2003 12:03 PM

Phaedrus - From your Puzzlers file:I believe "jewk" is a sausage, but
I'm not familiar with that word.

Potato Sausage

6 lbs. hamburger
6 lbs. potatoes
2 medium onions
4 T. salt (or less to taste)
2 tsp. pepper
1/2 lb beef casings
Grind the potatoes and onions and mix with the rest of the ingredients
very thoroughly.  Fill the casings evenly but do not overfill.  When
ready to cook, prick small holes in each sausage.  Start boiling in cold
water and boil very slowly for about 30 minutes.  This recipe makes
about 12 to 18 inch sausages.  They freeze well so can be made ahead of
time.  Ground pork can be used instead of hamburger.

Hi Irene,

Ahh... Ted?

Ok, these are a dish from the Middle Ages. "Frytour" is an old variation on "fritter". There's a recipe below.

Phaed

  Take almaundes blaunched, and grynde hem al to doust withouten eny lycour.

  Close it + erinne fast, and frye it in oile; clarifie hony with wyne, & bake

  1/2 lb blanched almonds

  1 T sugar
  scant 1/4 t salt
  oil
  2/3 c honey
  1/4 c Rhine wine

  Grind almonds thoroughly: 1/2 lb = 1 1/2 c whole = 2 c ground. Stir together 
  with ginger, sugar and salt. Mix flour with enough water to make a slightly 
  sticky dough. Roll out dough very thin and cut into 2" squares. Place heaped
  teaspoon of ground almond mix on dough squares. Fold corners to center and 
  seal. Fry in 1/2"-1" of oil in a frying pan until brown, drain on paper 
  towels, then place in baking pan. Heat honey and wine together; pour over 
  fritters and bake at 350deg. for 10 minutes.
