Today I tried making "Protose" which was a food product invented by John Harvey Kellogg. Got the recipe from :http://fourpoundsflour.blogspot.com/2009/02/history-dish-mondays-protose.html

for recreations of old dishes - the Blue Blazer cocktail might be more up your street.
The "Protose" was very tasty though I think that was down to fresh sage, the seitan having shoyu in it already, and use of oatmeal as well.
