Hashed Turkey Recipe from 1909

Hi everyone, just came across a great recipe for left over turkey. Hope you all had a good Christmas and New Year 2015. If you’re like me you will be wondering what to do with your left over turkey. So follow this recipe idea for something different and vintage from 1909.

Cut the remains free from the bone into small pieces, roll them in flour, and season with salt and pepper. Melt a little butter in a saucepan, and partly fry in it some onions. Add a little flour, and let it brown, then stir in a little stock. Put in the pieces of turkey with any of the stuffing you have, cover closely, and simmer for half an hour. Arrange the meat neatly on a hot dish, add to the saucepan a dessert spoonful of mushrooms, ketchup, a desert spoonful of walnut vinegar, and a little grated nutmeg. Boil up, stir well, and pour over the turkey.
