2 recipes after "Charocis for Seder" (and that spelling kind of threw me, actually) in _The Settlement Cookbook_:

Molded Sardine Appetizer
2 cans boneless, skinless sardines, large
1/2 lb butter
1/2 pint pimiento olives
Seasoning of lemon juice and paprika
Top of pineapple

Mash sardines with fork, add creamed butter.  Mix and season.  Set in refrigerator until firm.  Mold in shape of pineapple and stick pineapple top into top.  Cover sides with olives, sliced crosswise.  Let stand in refrigerator about 6 hours.  Serve with sliced lemon and toast points.  Serves 8 to 10 people.

Um, yeah.  Yum.
More from _The Settlement Cookbook_:

Liver Juice
Cut the raw liver into small pieces and sear slightly in a pan, for less than a minute.  Place the liver in a square made of several thicknesses of gauze.  Squeeze out the juice.  Serve very cold with orange juice.  [Or, you know, don't.]

Irish Moss Lemonade
1/4 cup Irish moss [This cookbook is from Wisconsin--?!?!]
2 cups boiling water
Juice of 1 lemon
1/3 cup sugar
[The rest is as expected from the title]

I also loved the (original!) scare quotes in this discussion:
"Vegetables of all kinds and especially the green, leafy varieties are rich in 'vitamins.'"

She assumes you've got a spider to cook in, too....
