CLASSIC RECIPES FOR FISH, Freshwater and Saltwater

 

TO COOK SALT CODFISH
(Domestic Receipt-Book, 1858)


Soak the fish in a pailful of water all night. Then hang it in a good deal of water where it will be kept warm. Put one even great spoonful of saleratus in the water. (This last softens it as nothing else will do.) Change the water an hour before dinner, and hang it where it will get scalding hot. It must not boil, but only simmer. Take it up into a napkin, so as to keep it dry and hot.
