Portsmouth Monumental Cook Book

Excerpt from Portsmouth Monumental Cook Book: Compiled by the Ladies of the Soldiers' Aid Society, of Portsmouth, Ohio I do not propose to enter into any disquisition on the art cuisine, though "what I know" about it might not be less than would prevent one from making such use of the materials of which food is composed, to keep one from starving. Those for the perpetuation of whose memory this book is compiled, suffered little on the tented or untented field for lack of knowledge of the art of cooking. They could prepare meals that their General could most generally relish, for Generals had appetites as well those who were "only privates." Whatever else was wanting, the were rarely without that most excellent condiment that seldom fails to make even ordinary food palatable; yet, good as it is, it is seldom in demand, never advertised or offered for sale, and when possessed, the possessor wants to get rid of it; and compared to which, all other sauce would be but a saucy fraud. The sauce to which I refer has the significant cognomen of Hunger Sauce. For further particulars, inquire within after having fasted - say, twenty-four hours. If you want to fasten what I mean on your minds, and know any faster way to do it, I shall still be your fast friend.
