Tillypronie (note spelling difference) is a Victorian house in Scotland where Charlotte, Lady Clark of Tillypronie collected recipes and assembled them into a cookbook, published posthumously in 1909. The cookbook does mention serving Brussels sprouts in soup, but doesn’t have a recipe with the same name.

Pimolas are olives stuffed with pimiento. You know, what we usually find in a martini. I saw a suggestion that it was a portmanteau  of “pimiento” and “olive”

April 28

04-28
Broiled Shad
Baked Potatoes
Dandelions
Lettuce and String Bean Salad
Toasted Cheese Sandwiches
Pistachio Ice Cream, *Claret Sauce

In 1914 April 28 was a Tuesday.

We saw a savory Claret Sauce served with liver on April 14 and now we have a sweet one to top ice cream.

The Pistachio Ice Cream is a little surprising — there is not a single pistachio in it! It’s just vanilla ice cream with the addition of almond extract and leaf green food coloring. There’s a Pistachio Ice Cream with Peaches coming up in May, which I thought about linking to instead, but there’s no mention of peaches here. That one is made with junket tablets (rennet), instead of a custard, but it also contains no actual nuts, just the same extracts and green food coloring.
