History

Originally from the Goodman of Paris.

Notes

Makes 1 large tart, or 8 tartlets--3 lbs mushrooms filled 24 tartlets enough stuffing left over for 2 or 3 more.

Mushrooms of one night are the best, and are small and red inside, closed above; and they should be peeled, then washed in hot water and parboil; if you wish to put them in pastry add oil, cheese, and powdered spices.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Mushrooms
  • 9oz cheese (parmesan), although less may be used if believed 9oz is too much.
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (can be left out)

spice powder:

Method

  1. Slice mushrooms and parboil (put into boiling water and cook two minutes); drain.
  2. Grate or chop cheese.
  3. Grind grains of paradise and mix up spices.
  4. Mix mushrooms, 2/3 of cheese, spices and oil.
  5. Put mixture into crust, put remaining cheese over. Makes scant 9" pie.
  6. Bake about 20-25 minutes at 350F.
