Heating the Rutchers

Heating the Rutchers

While the bake oven is heating, the redware rutchers. holding the To Bake Chickens receipt (recipe), are warmed by the fire to prevent cracking of the rutchers while in the oven.  The rutchers were heated slowly and turned to heat all sides.  The chickens are hiding under the cabbage leaves.

  2. Sandie,

    This is typically a method utilized by the Pennsylvania Germans and the piece of equipment is basically half a jug.
