    Cookgirl's Note:

    From a reprint of the vintage cookbook the Williamsburg Art of Cookery Or, Accomplifh'd Gentlewoman's Companion originally published in 1742. Cymlings are also known as patty pan squash. (I called them UFOs as a child and still do!) No amounts were given in the recipe therefore measurements and yield are estimated. Original recipe used either bacon ends or "fatback", if I'm understanding the language.

      I cut back on the bacon fat used, but this is really good.
