Published for the benefit of the Ladies’ Home Missionary Society. Mrs. Goodell declares in her preface, “ It is a temperance book; that is another great merit in these days when many good people are not sufficiently careful to bring up their children with right habits. Some here may learn how delicious dishes may be made without the use of liquors. ” Some recipes, both in manuscript and from newspaper clippings, mounted to blank pages intended for such. Particularly strong are the additions to the preserves section. Fading to cloth, subbing to spine head, short tear to cloth along rear hinge, a bit of dampstaining to outer margins of pages, else good. $300.
The NuWave Oven displays not only an incredible combination of conduction, convection and infra-red cooking power, but it also is incredibly versatile, masquerading as a food dehydrator.
My 18-year-old son is a definite carnivore and one of his favorite ways to enjoy meat is beef jerky. Unfortunately, jerky is quite expensive and the bag portions are minimal, but in this economy, it’s my NuWave to the rescue!
I simply take thin slices of any beef steak that is on sale, marinate it for a few hours in the refrigerator in a plastic bag with a bottle of Teriyaki sauce (he likes the Garlic Ginger) or just some soy sauce, sherry, garlic and ginger, and then put it in my Nu-Wave on the rack for one hour at 20% power. I turn the slices over half way through the cooking time, to ensure an even dehydration. This produces a fragrant, delicious jerky that it quite inexpensive (especially when you watch the sales!)
Clean up is a breeze, since the bottom pan is removable.
So, if you are in the market for a food dehydrator, think long and hard about purchasing a Nu-Wave Oven and getting so much more for your money!
