There's a newspaper article from 100 years or so ago about a wedding in the community where I work. The article lists the food that was served and says “200 pounds of headcheese, 2 milkcans of ausereihuf, 200 gooseberry pies, 60 nine-layer cakes..." One of our librarians wants to do a blog post and would like to know what "ausereihuf" is.
Wonder if you have any ideas what "ausereihuf" is. I’m thinking the word might be misspelled or the reporter took it down phonetically, since we can’t find it anywhere. I wonder if it could start with "ost-" rather than "aus-". for instance, "Osterei" is Easter eggs.
Anybody have any suggestions?
