 The Virginia Housewife Or, Methodical Cook
A Facsimile of an Authentic Early American Cookbook

By Mary Randolph

Sweet Potato Buns

"Boil and mash a potato, run into it as much flour as will make it like bread - add spice and sugar to your taste, with a spoonful of yeast; when it has risen well, work in a piece of butter, bake it in small rolls to be eaten with hot butter, either for breakfast or tea."

The Virginia Housewife is available at Amazon.Com!
