Well I did find orange blossom water which I assume is the same thing here - https://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/orange-blossom-water-4-oz?gclid=Cj0KCQiA3IPgBRCAARIsABb-iGIhES3DXYgdG232d9zcst_aSmsVmviohiQrWlnQBEc-FYtYnS_6Ya4aAkSyEALw_wcBI'd like to find the ingredients for this and do it! Remember reading somewhere (who knows where!) that Martha Washington made this exact butter for gingerbread. I bet it would be lovely on warm gingerbread!
Thank you for mentioning that! I take for granted that people know the weird f character in pre-19th century text is really an s. I'm too used to reading old recipes and various genealogy documents now to not automatically substitute it in my mind as I read.Replace to f in the text with an s. To make more sense of ingredients and method
LOL! I know when I saw it I was like fairy butter!?!? I thought it was an early name for whipped butter, but was pleasantly surprised. I forget which chain restaurant I went to where they serve warm rolls with cinnamon tinged light as air whipped butter, but it's pure heaven!
Ooo! I LOVE gingerbread - I've never tried orange gingerbread, but I can see how that might add a little something different to the spicy mix. And I totally agree, gingerbread is best enjoyed with tea, especially a good strong breakfast tea.I used to have a recipe for orange gingerbread...I'll keep looking! Gingerbread, to me, is too strong a flavor to mix with coffee, so I usually like it with tea. Seems to make a good balance!
Amazon has several different brands of Orange flower and or blossom water at around $7.00I'd like to find the ingredients for this and do it! Remember reading somewhere (who knows where!) that Martha Washington made this exact butter for gingerbread. I bet it would be lovely on warm gingerbread!
