Dishes For The Sick And Convalescent

My friend Kjirsten is sick~while we are broiling in the sun right now she is in the middle of winter and feeling pretty low. I was flipping through the old cookbooks and found a section for sick people in the 1928 edition of a Sunkist sponsered book. It starts off by giving you an education on the health properties of citrus fruit. I'll spare you of that. Here are the recipes:

Lemon Whey

1 cup milk
1 Tbsp "Sunkist" lemon juice

Heat milk in a double boiler and add lemon juice. Cook without stirring until the whey separates. Strain through a double thickness of cheese cloth. Add sugar to taste and serve at once or chill and serve. DISGUSTING! Ewww


1 egg
grated orange rind
1 Tbsp orange juice
1 orange
2 tsp butter
2 tsp powdered sugar

Beat egg, orange rind, juice, and salt. Peel orange and slice thinly. Sprinkle with 1 tsp of sugar. Melt butter in a frying pan, pour in egg slowly. Cook over low heat until all mixture is cooked and flip onto plate. Sprinkle with remaining sugar and surround with orange slices. MUCH BETTER.


3 Tbsp "Sunkist" Lemon juice
3/4 cup boiling water
1 Tbsp sugar

Add sugar to boiling water and stir until dissolved. Add lemon juice and serve.

REALLY. That's it? Kjirsten, add some vodka or whisky and I gaurantee this recipe will make you feel better. Get Well soon!!!
