In colonial times, people were expected to know the Bible very well. Originally, this recipe gave measurements for ingredients that were unnamed- the cook was referred to the appropriate section of the Bible to find out what was actually being measured! We'll make it easy and give you the measurements, the ingredients and the biblical reference.
