Bread Stuffing Recipe

This recipe makes 8 servings.
1 lb Bread

Pepper, freshly ground
1 White onion,
1/2 teaspoon of Sage -chopped fine

1/2 teaspoon of Thyme
1 teaspoon of Salt
1/4 lb Butter, melted
On the weekend before Thanksgiving, set aside some homemade bread, to dry
out. Leave it unwrapped so that it will dry thoroughly.
Thanksgiving morning, cut the bread into thick slices and remove the crust
from each slice. Dip each slice into cold water, and wring out carefully.
After squeezing each slice dry, crumble it into a large bowl by rubbing
between your hands. Add salt, pepper, sage, thyme and chopped onion to the bowl, and stir
gently. Pour on the melted butter and toss like a salad.

Hot Rum Toddy Recipe

1 lb Dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon of White cardamom
1/2 lb Butter, salted
1 teaspoon of Nutmeg, ground
Dark rum, top-quality
1 teaspoon of Cinnamon, ground
1 teaspoon of Cloves, ground
MAKING THE BATTER: Put all batter ingredients (everything but the rum) in
a food processor and run it until the mixture turns creamy. Fold it down
once with a rubber spatula to make sure the spices are blended in, and run
the food processor some more.
Scoop the mixture into a plastic container, and refrigerate. It will keep
for many months in the refrigerator, even though it contains butter.
MAKING THE DRINKS: Fill a coffee mug half full of boiling water. The
easiest way to do this is to put a mug of hot water in the microwave. If
you don't have a microwave, then fill the mug with boiling water, pour it
out, then fill it half full of boiling water.
Add about 2 generous tablespoons of batter. Stir until the batter
dissolves in the hot water. I use a small wire whisk for this stirring.
Add 2 jiggers (about 3 oz) of the best rum you can afford. When I make
this in quantities for parties I like to use Myers Dark Rum.
