People should be aware that that the household manuscript by Fettiplace 
was not published before Spurling did her selected
version in 1986. The complete manuscript in three volumes wasn't published
until Stuart Press released it in 3 volumes in the 1990's.
Saying it was published after her death in 1647 makes it sound like the 
book was published
in the late 1640's or 1650's and not the 1990's.


> Note:  Elinor Fettiplace was born in 1570 and began writing her cookbook in 
> 1604.  The manuscript was published after her death in 1647.  The sweet 
> potato recipes here are probably Elizabethan.
> These are both from Fettiplace
