There are lots of lucky homes that still sport the tucked-away retreat of an inglenook because in many cases they were too costly—either financially or emotionally—to remove. And some new homes sometimes include such a delightful addition. But for those who might lack an ingle, a nook, or both, we present a few ideas for recreating the ambient magic of life in the circle of the hearth.
We have taken ingredients that the farm at Ledges would have amply supplied, as well as some pantry-fillers that might have been delivered from the grocer in New Haven, and supplied the following recipes inspired by the cookbooks of Elisabeth's era. We have also added some ideas to keep that good fire in that good oven blissfully busy from four to six-thirty, all in order to create a home-table destined to make memories. Recipes include: Balsamic & Maple dressing, Simple Souffles or Quiche sans pate, Cook's Away Cocottes, Hester and Tom's Sweet Quiche, A Cocotte Bar, Corn and Squashes Bread Muffins, Cinnamon Cider Cake, Between Four and Half Past Six
In an effort to reflect the unique naturalist writing style of Elizabeth Woodbridge Morris, Tanner created a composition based on her description of the murmur of the river running through our dreams while she and Jonathan camped, as described in More Jonathan Papers.
Autumn gardening is arguably the ultimate (and quite literal) hedge-fund stratagem, since every moment spent in the fall garden pays huge—and almost unbelievably extensive—dividends. We use some of Elizabeth's insights, with some additional specifics, to chronicle some of the chores that create the garden of to-morrow from an autumn garden after frost.
Seymore and Bonnie Duhg are watched by the robber clanns during their voyage from Ayr to Iona. Nevertheless, aboard ship, Seymore is introduced to a lytfolc culture so different from his own that, as he puts it, they might as well be on the other side of the moon in terms of his own ideas about time and life.
