    Ambervim's Note:

    Digitally released by the JFK Presidential Library 2/11/14. I found it on this BBC article: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/blogs-magazine-monitor-26160596 It is also posted on the JFC Presidential Library Facebook page 2/11/14: https://www.facebook.com/JFKLibrary It is interesting to see Mary Hemingway's special instructions scribbled in the margins. The original recipe specified Spice Island Mei Yen Powder which is no longer available so I have replaced that with the components of salt, sugar and MSG. These are whopping 8 oz burgers....I might make them smaller. If you do, adjust the cooking time.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Break up the meat with a fork and scatter the garlic, onion and dry seasonings over it, then mix them into the meat with a fork or your fingers.
    2. 2
      Let the bowl of meat sit out of the icebox for ten or fifteen minutes while you set the table and make the salad.
    3. 3
      Add the relish, capers, everything else including wine and let the meat sit, quietly marinating, for another ten minutes if possible.
    4. 4
      Now make your fat, juicy patties with your hands. The patties should be an inch thick, and soft in texture but not runny.
    5. 5
      Have the oil in your frying pan hot but not smoking when you drop in the patties and then turn the heat down and fry the burgers about four minutes.
    6. 6
      Take the pan off the burner and turn the heat high again.
    7. 7
      Flip the burgers over, put the pan back on the hot fire, then after one minute, turn the heat down again and cook another three minutes.
    8. 8
      Both sides of the burgers should be crispy brown and the middle pink and juicy.
    9. 9
      Time does not include sitting times.
