on this day in…

1801 Elisha Brown Jr. pressed a 1235 pound cheese ball on his farm. He presented it to president Thomas Jefferson at the White House.

1836 Sir Thomas Clifford Allbutt was born. An English physician, he invented the short (6 inch) clinical thermometer. Before this a foot long meat thermometer was used that took 20 minutes to determine a patient’s temperature. Ouch!

1851 The first cheese factory in the U.S. to make cheese from scratch was started in Rome, New York in 1851 by Jesse Williams. He had his own dairy herd and purchased more milk from other local farmers to make his cheese. By combining the milk and making large cheeses he could produce cheese with uniform taste and texture. Before then, companies would buy small batches of home made cheese curd from local farmers to make into cheese, each batch of curds producing cheese with wide differences in taste and texture from one another.

Don’t make like a banana and…you know.  Stick around for today’s food facts.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Banana Split

  1. The banana split was invented in 1904 at Strickler’s Drug Store in Pennsylvania.
  2. A banana split starts with a banana split lengthwise, topped with scoops of ice cream, assorted syrups and finally whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.

  4. A banana is cut in half lengthwise (hence the split) and laid in the dish.
  5. There are many variations, but the classic banana split is made with scoops of vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice cream served in a row between the split banana.

1801 Elisha Brown Jr. pressed a 1235 pound cheese ball on his farm. He presented it to president Thomas Jefferson at the White House.

1836 Sir Thomas Clifford Allbutt was born. An English physician, he invented the short (6 inch) clinical thermometer. Before this a foot long meat thermometer was used that took 20 minutes to determine a patient’s temperature. Ouch!

Thanks Sir Allbutt

1851 The first cheese factory in the U.S. to make cheese from scratch was started in Rome, New York in 1851 by Jesse Williams. He had his own dairy herd and purchased more milk from other local farmers to make his cheese. By combining the milk and making large cheeses he could produce cheese with uniform taste and texture. Before then, companies would buy small batches of home made cheese curd from local farmers to make into cheese, each batch of curds producing cheese with wide differences in taste and texture from one another.

Here are today’s five thing to know about Cherry:

  1. Cherries were brought to America by ship with early settlers in the 1600s.
  2. Cherry pie filling is the number one pie filling sold in the US.
  3. Darker cherries have higher antioxidant and vitamin levels than lighter ones, but sour cherries, which are generally bright red rather than a darker red-purple in color, have far higher levels than sweet.
  4. The main kinds of cherries can be found growing on tall trees that range between fifteen and thirty meters tall.
  5. Asian varieties, such as the Japanese Sakura, (known colloquially as the cherry blossom) are well-regarded for their long, weeping branches filled with small pink flowers.

  • 1795 Josiah Wedgwood died. English inventor, artist and world renowned pottery designer and manufacturer. His daughter, Susannah, was the mother of Charles Darwin.
  • 1871 Oleomargarine was patented by Henry Bradley of Binghamton, New York. Hippolyte Mege-Mouries developed margarine in France in 1869, and received a U.S. patent in 1873 for margarine. There were many patents granted for various formulas and manufacturing techniques for margarine in the U.S. beginning in 1871. I can remember, as a kid, kneading a plastic pouch of margarine, with a red dot of food coloring, to distribute the color throughout the margarine. The dairy industry was able to have laws passed that prevented manufacturers from coloring the margarine. (The natural color of margarine is white).
  • 1888 The first patent for wax coated paper drinking straws (made by a spiral winding process) was issued to Marvin C. Stone of Washington, D.C.
  • 1892 John Ronald Reuel Tolkein was born. Author of ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy. Food and hospitality play important roles in both.

The delicious cherry cobbler packed with tart cherries  ,

is a perfect dissert for sweet-lovers.

Celebrate the National Cherry Cobbler day on May 17th!

Did you know…

  1. A cobbler is a deep dish (casserole or soufflé dish) fruit pie (peach is most common) with only a top biscuit dough crust.
  2. Fruit cobblers can be made with almost any fruit, singly or in combination.
  3. The cobbler takes its name from the biscuit dough crust on top – it is rough looking or ‘cobbled.’   It originated in the U.S. sometime in the early to mid 19th century.
  4. A Cobbler is also a drink, which probably predates the fruit cobbler pie.
  5. A cobbler usually consisted of whiskey or rum with fruit juice and/or sugar, garnished with mint and/or citrus.
