    My #1 way to cook a pork tenderloin or a boneless pork loin because it's ALWAYS moist and tender. It's easy and foolproof! If you like, marinate the roast and rub with any seasonings that please your palate! So many people have asked me how long to cook tenderloins if they have "more than one" to cook, I wanted to give a simple response. ANSWER: So long as the tenderloins are NOT touching each other, cook 3 or 4 individual tenderloins for the same amount of time as if you were cooking one. Remember, each tenderloin is cooking in its own separate space. EXAMPLE: If cooking three 1-pound tenderloins, cook them only 5-1/5 minutes TOTAL. This makes it a great entree recipe when having a dinner party for 8-12 people, or more. If you enjoy this pork recipe and cooking method, you might want to try my similar beef cooking method - Recipe #65987.

    Recipe #63828

    This is an unusual tart which can be baked all year round using elderflower cordial, but it is best to use fresh elderflowers when available (in June and July). It is a variation of a cheese tart using only fresh or stale breadcrumbs. Elderflowers have strong medicinal credentials and were used by witches in Medieval England. Traditionally, the flowers were infused into wine, cordials and vinegars and were also used in elderflower fritters, now reappearing on modern restaurant menus. As well as being an interesting pudding tart, this tart can be eaten outside set meal times with a glass of elderflower wine or champagne.

    The first gooseberries of the season, especially when baked in a tart of pie, are traditionally served on Whit Sunday, making a pudding that has always been particularly popular in the county of Warwickshire. The elderflower heads give a delicate Muscat flavour to the fruit.

    Recipe #123380

    From the 1553 German Cookbook of Sabina Welserin - Nim ain halb pfúnd mandel, mer oder minder, gestosen, darnach man sý will grosß machen, nim púterschmaltz, siben air, das weisß darúon, solchs dúrchainandergemischt, nachmals ain lot rerlen darúnder, doch der merer tail daraúfgestret vnnd die torten mit rossenwasser besprengt, aúch soll man darzú nemen vngeferlich ain 1/2 pfúnd zúcker, daranthon/jst aúch gút/ nemlich ain eitterlin vom kalb gesotten vnnd klaingehackt. - Take a half pound of ground almonds, more or less, according to how large a tart one will make. Take butter and the whites from seven eggs. Mix everything together, afterwards put a half ounce of cinnamon into it, the largest part, however, sprinkled on top, and sprinkle the tart with rose water. Also take about a half pound of sugar and put it in. The white fat from a leg of veal, cooked and finely chopped, is also especially good. (Translation by Valoise Armstrong, 1998) - DO NOT make this tart with regular supermarket Cassia cinnamon; the texture and flavor are too coarse, and the end product is not pleasant. Check Hispanic groceries for Canel cinnamon, or order it from Penzey's Spices (where it is called Ceylon True Cinnamon) or other online spice merchant.

    Recipe #321419

    Posted to the SCA_recipes LiveJournal community. This is a Portuguese reinvention of a Moorish dish; a real Muslim dish would not have bacon. "Cut up a fat hen and cook on a mild flame, with 2 spoons of fat, some bacon slices, lots of coriander, a pinch of parsley, some mint leaves, salt and a large onion. Cover and let it get golden brown, stirring once in a while. Then cover hen with water and let boil, and season with salt, vinegar, cloves, saffron, black pepper and ginger. When chicken is cooked, pour in 4 beaten yolks. Then take a deep dish, lined with slices of bread, and pour chicken on top."

    Recipe #340287

    These delicious baked pears in wine have a long history and contain several very old ingredients, saffron and ginger. This is a traditional St Jude's Day recipe, St Jude (the patron saint of hopeless cases!) was a 1st century apostle, whose feast falls on 28th October. In old England, Bedford Boys would sell Warden Pears in the streets on this day. They would cry: "Who knows what I have got? In a hot pot. Baked wardens'all hot. Who knows what I have got?" The Cistercian Abbey of Warden in Bedfordshire gave its name to the Warden Pear, a variety of cooking pear mentioned by Shakespeare in some of his plays.

    Recipe #238805

    I have translated this from The English Huswife by Gervase Markham 1615 AD. It's unusual in that before this time pies were almost always made with a single crust while this one has two. Often a two crusted pie was called a coffin in that time period. Rosewater can be found in most healthfood stores or Middle Eastern groceries in the US.
