SANDWICH RECIPES DEP’T.

WE PRESENT instructions for the assembly of sandwiches from Salads, Sandwiches and Chafing Dish Recipes, Copyright 1916, now in the public domain for the delectation of all, written by Marion Harris Neil, M.C.A., former Cookery Editor, The Ladies’ Home Journal, author of How to Cook in Casserole Dishes, Candies and Bonbons and How to Make Them, Canning, Preserving and Pickling, and The Something-Different Dish.

NASTURTIUM SANDWICHES
Nasturtium flowers
Salt and pepper to taste
Buttered bread, brown or white

Chop some nasturtium flowers, season with salt and a little pepper, spread on a slice of bread and butter very thinly cut, cover, and cut into any desired shape, and decorate the sandwiches with a few nasturtium blooms. Or flavor some butter with nasturtium leaves and blossoms, and with it spread a thin slice of moist bread. Press fresh nasturtium leaves and blossoms upon the butter, and place one piece of bread upon the other. These sandwiches may be modified by combining thin slices of cucumber with the blossoms. The leaves also make a capital addition to ordinary chopped or sliced meat or egg sandwiches, and may be recommended to those in search of something new for afternoon teas or picnics.

NANTUCKET SANDWICHES
Graham and white bread
1/2 pint (1 cup) chopped nut meats
2 lemons
1/2 pound stoned dates
1/2 lb. seeded raisins
3/4 lb. of figs
12 marshmallows
1 oz. (2 tablespoonfuls) sugar
1 beaten white egg

Put the figs, dates, and raisins through a food-chopper, add the strained juice of the lemon, the sugar, nut meats, the marshmallows melted, and white of egg. Mix and spread on rounds of Graham and white bread.

NUT AND HONEY SANDWICHES
1 gill (1/2 cup) honey
3 ozs. (3/4 cup) chopped black walnut meats
1/2 lb. (1 cup) butter
Biscuits or crackers

Melt the butter, stir in the honey and the walnuts. Chill and spread between crackers or biscuits. To make honey sandwiches for afternoon tea cut thin slices of brown or entire wheat bread and spread quite thick with honey. Sprinkle with chopped preserved cherries or chopped preserved ginger, and press the slices together. Cut into fancy shapes and serve.

If you decide to prepare and enjoy any of these sandwiches, kindly send a picture to us at hmmweekly@substack.com.
