“We’ve all heard the expression, “eat humble pie.” It’s used at a metaphor, but humble pie was a real thing and Martha Washington had a recipe for it. It’s a type of savory meat pie, but it may seem less appealing when one learns that “humbles” are the heart, kidneys, liver and other organs of a deer. The recipe suggests alternatives including “pluck,” a general term for animal innards used as food, and wisely directs to “perboyle” them, meaning to boil thoroughly (as opposed to the modern “parboil”). “Verjuice” is the juice of unripe grapes or crabapples. Next time you have to eat humble pie, try the real thing.”
