Lewis Lloyd Collection: Recipes

The Lewis Lloyd Collection in Powys County Archives contained many handwritten recipes. Many were probably copied from printed sources, but some may have been family recipes.

If you should try these at home (and we haven't tried these ourselves), there is one uncommon unit - the gill. Four gill = 1 pint (20 oz), so 1 gill = 5 oz.

For convenience, the recipes are on several pages:

Salads and Pickle
Soups
Vegetables
Main Courses:
Curry & Cutlets
Fish & Vegetarian
Cakes, Biscuits & Desserts
