Tutti Frutti New England Butt'ry Shelf Style


"The Butt'ry (properly spelled buttery
of course) is a small room with a smell of good
things to eat and a look of delicious plenty.
It is located  next to the kitchen in a cool
corner of  the house."...

           Mary Mason Campbell

                (Illustrated by Tasha Tudor)


"Here too is kept the crock of
tutti frutti, which is as part of
 the Butt'ry equipment as anything
else you can see there.
It holds two gallons of rich fruit
sauce for ladling generously onto
a plate of vanilla ice cream or
 a slice of sponge cake, and
I've known many a time when
a finger was surreptitiously
dipped and popped into an
appreciative mouth for
elegant tasting."

  Mary Mason Campbell

 "The jar is always empty by the
time the first fresh strawberries
are brought in from the garden,
washed clean then, and a pint of
the very best brandy poured in.
Two cups of firm red-ripe
strawberries are sliced in half
and added to the brandy, then
two cups of sugar on top." 

  Mary Mason Campbell

"This is stirred gently every day
with a long handled wooden spoon
until the sugar is dissolved."

19 And the land shall yield her fruit,
and ye shall eat your fill,
and dwell therein in safety.

"Next fresh pineapple is pealed,
sliced, and cut into small wedges."

" Peaches cut in generous cubes
after skins have been removed"

"This is stirred carefully
after each addition until
sugar has melted in.
Several thicknesses of cheesecloth
laid across the mouth of the jar,
with the lid on top, keep out
fruit flies "

  Mary Mason Campbell
                The New England Butt'ry shelf Cook Book
                (Illustrated by Tasha Tudor)




" This is kept at least a month
before tasting, to "marry" the
fruit  flavors"

Tutti Frutti

A stone jar (with a cover)
Awaits the libation 
of arrrac, poured over
One bottle its ration.
Of fruit in its season,
Pineapple raspberry,
The peach with its bloom on,
A well as cherry,
And strawberries Rosy,
One pound you will take,
And in kitchen so cosy
This rich compound make.
But of sugar three quarters
In weight will will be best
And one of your daughters
will stir this with zest.
For a day or two after
Each fruit is immersed,
With cheer and with laughter,
This may be rehearsed,
Eat this fruit by itself,
Better still with ice cream,
In a dish of old delf,
'T is a poem- a dream
           Mrs. H. L. Hallett
        The Kirmess
           Cook Book 1887

A Tea at Old Fort Niagara 1812 Style


Recently we enjoyed a Tea
with friends at
Old Fort Niagara

It was ever so lovely and delightful!


Ruth our Hostess
organized a marvelous
afternoon!!


She had to go to the Cook House to boil the water for Tea!




















All came together elegantly and perfect!!










And then the guests arrived








We all quickly became friends!!




and we enjoyed grand music









Soon the Gentlemen arrived














And we gave a clothing demonstration




It was great fun!!












After rest and leisure games.....



.....the men set off to war!















These things I have spoken unto you,
that in me ye might have peace.
 In the world ye shall have tribulation:
but be of good cheer;
 I have overcome the world.
                                       John 16:33
