Old time cooking terms, not usually heard today, can be gleaned from old New Hampshire recipes.
A few of them include:
. chafing dish = a non-flammable container used to hold burning fuel; used to heat anything placed on top of it.
. gill = 1/4 of a pint or 5 fluid oz (0.142 litre).
. hogshead = a large barrel or cask containing liquid, usually about 63 gallons
. Indian meal = cornmeal
. noggin = usually the same measurement as a gill
. saleratus = baking soda
. sweet milk = fresh milk (not spoiled, sour, or scalded). Whole milk
