I don't know that I would ever eat Snow Cabbage or Stuffed Rabbit Roast. but it is interesting to read these old recipes. Very few directions or instructions. Guess they thought everybody knew how to mix and cook !
This is the home of my maternal grandparents. It's been empty many years now. Back in the day you could smell the chicken and dressing the minute the car door opened. That front room on the right was the parlor, no kids allowed. Her flowers are all gone and her fig bushes. The magnolia tree has survived. I can still hear the cousins screaming and laughing.

My Aunt Daris still makes hers this way. She calls them dumplings.
Make very stiff dough out of 3 eggs, a little salt and flour. Roll in to very very thin sheets, let it lay a while until it begins to het dry, then dust flour, roll up and with a very sharp knife cut into very fine strips and shreds. Let these dry a little, then drop into beef or chicken broth. They must be stirred occasionally as they stick easily.
I found this book in the research room while looking for something else. It brought back a lot of memories Mother's bread, grandmother's chicken and dressing (the southern style), Aunt Betra's rice pudding, Aunt Helen's squash casserole, and Aunt Daris's chocolate pie ! Interesting recipes in this book, anybody ever tried this ?
