Popovers, Pancakes and Puddings

Yorkshire PuddingI wanted to make Yorkshire Pudding for The Christmas Holidays.  So, it’s off to Wikipedia (and Alton Brown) I go.

By the way, here’s a tasty tidbit for you.  Did you know that the recipe for Yorkshire Pudding is almost identical to Popovers?   The major difference being that instead of using butter, one uses the “drippings” or rendered fat from cooked meat (usually beef/lamb or if you can get it, mutton).  No worries if you don’t want to use Beef drippings, use butter.

During the episode From Alton Brown (recipes above) he mentioned a book call The Whole Duty of a woman.  I was curious so I looked it up.  You can read it online.  From: www.archiveorg.

The whole duty of a woman, (1737) or, an infallible guide to the fair sex : containing rules, directions, and observations, for their conduct and behavior through all ages and circumstances of life, as virgins, wives, or widows : with … rules and receipts in every kind of cookery.  A real find.
