Notes:

Pinch of this, ‘thumb’ of that
From The Eudora News, May 23 2012

Photo by Sara Shepherd

Phil Minkin, Lawrence, has several of his grandmother's recipes, including her version of traditional Jewish flodin. His grandmother didn't use written recipes, but years ago Minkin's mother wrote them down and passed them on to Minkin.

Phil Minkin’s memories of his grandmother’s house include her backyard garden and grape arbor, and her homemade sauerkraut, pickles and jams.

Also strong in Minkin’s memory is his grandmother’s version of a traditional Jewish pastry called flodin, which she made with yeast bread dough and cottage cheese filling.

“It’s great when it comes out of the oven,” said Minkin, Lawrence. “But the next day, if you slice it and fry it, it’s divine.”

Henrietta Kain immigrated from Russia to Sedalia, Mo., where she raised Minkin’s mother, Louise Minkin. Phil Minkin recalls childhood trips to Sedalia, where his grandmother served her homemade bread.

She cooked with loose measurements like a “thumb” of butter, Minkin said, using her basic bread dough as a base for a number of recipes, such as the flodin.

Eventually, Minkin’s mother “translated” Kain’s bread and flodin recipes into written form. Minkin has those recipes now - handwritten on brittle, yellowed pieces of notepaper.

Minkin tries to be inventive in his own cooking. In the 1970s, when he was the cook at Children’s Hour Headstart, his philosophy was featured in a local community cookbook.

“Cooking should be fun and creative,” he was quoted as saying. “Cooking only by recipe is like painting by number - good but just like everyone else’s. Once you have a basic understanding of cooking and food, the fun of improvising comes in.”

Kain’s flodin recipe was more notes than specifics. In the version below, we’ve filled in a few steps to help cooks who feel less comfortable improvising.

HENRIETTA KAIN’S FLODIN

Makes two loaves

1 cake yeast (see note, below)

2 1/2 cups lukewarm water

2 tablespoons sugar

3 tablespoons oil

1 teaspoon salt

3 eggs

Flour (at least 6 cups)

8-10 ounces dry curd cottage cheese

2-3 tablespoons butter, melted

8-ounce carton sour cream

In a large bowl, crumble yeast into water, dissolve. Add sugar, oil, salt and 2 eggs. Mix well.

Add enough flour to make a loose dough (about 6 to 7 cups). On a floured board, knead. Let dough rise, knead again. Let rise a second time. Punch down.

Heat the oven to 350 F.

Mix cottage cheese, 1 egg and melted butter.

Butter two bread pans. Place one-fourth of the dough in each. Spread with cottage cheese mixture.

Spread the remaining dough on top of cottage cheese, pinching edges to bottom layer of dough. Brush with butter and slash top to vent.

Place in oven about 20 minutes. Spread with sour cream, brown slowly until bread is cooked, another 20-30 minutes.

Note: Cake yeast, so-called because it’s sold in cake form, is fresh (rather than dried) and also known as wet or compressed yeast. If you can’t find fresh yeast, a 0.25-ounce packet of dry yeast is equivalent to a 0.6-ounce cake of yeast, according to redstaryeast.com. Each is enough to raise at least 4 cups of flour.

JOINT DISCOVERY OF NATHAN M. MNOOKIN CLIMAXES WORLD WIDE RESEARCH
Kansas City, Nov. 8, 1928 (JTA) -
(Jewish Daily Bulletin)

The recent announcement of the discovery of a new substitute for
rubber by Nathan M. Mnookin and Dr. Joseph C. Patrick, is greeted with pride by the Jewish community of Kansas City. Mr. Monokin, a young chemist, is well-known for his activities in many of the Jewish communal organizations in Kansas City, and is one of the founders of the Order of Aleph Zadek Aleph for Young Men.

The discovery of the rubber substitute is the achievement of both Dr. Joseph C. Patrick and Nathan M. Mnookin, and climaxes the research efforts of leading chemists the world over. This product has been named Thiocol."

The new substance looks like rubber, acts like rubber, is said to be more durable than rubber and can be used for most purposes rubber is used for, and others besides. In addition, the cost of the new substance is said to be less than half that of rubber, even at the present lowered prices.

The Standard Oil Company of Indiana has contracted for the manufacture of the product and has paid the young men's salary and expenses formore than a year to perfect and test their discovery. A number of patents are pending now, both in the United States and other countries.

Dr. Patrick and Mr. Mnookin, who have owned and operated the Industrial Testing Laboratory for five years after they left college laboratories, and had worked side by side in other Kansas City laboratories, say they have not produced synthetic rubber. It is different from rubber entirely so far as chemistry is concerned. To them it is "thiocol," the name they have chosen, a solid which isn't rubber chemically but is physically. To find the secret of manufacture, they got away from the old method of trying to make rubber by creating a substance with a rubber molecule.

Synthetic rubber had been made before. But the rubber made did not develop into a commercial practicality. It was too expensive, and not nearly "rubbery" enough. Other laboratories have produced substances with the molecular form of rubber (C5 H8 2), and while chemically this substance was rubber, physically it was not. It did not bend or stretch like rubber, or have the tough resiliency to blows and abrasion, and was highly perishable.

The two Kansas City chemists explained that they do not have artificial rubber, or synthetic rubber, in the exact sense. They have not a substance that has the same kind of molecular structure as rubber, as is the case with synthetic rubber. But their product does what the many kinds of synthetic rubber previously made in laboratories have not done. It looks, acts and wears like rubber, but at the same time has a chemical constitution entirely different from rubber, they stated.
