    FISH.–carp, crayfish, herrings, lobsters, mackerel, mullet, pike, prawns, salmon, soles, tench, trout, turbot.

    Pike are apparently known as jackfish in Canada – I have assumed here that Mrs Beeton ment the English definition of Pike! Tench is also known as the Docter Fish.

    MEAT.–Beef, lamb, mutton, veal, buck venison.

    Having trouble finding out what buck venison is but am assuming that it is young male deer – if anyone knows differently – please let me know!

    POULTRY.–Chickens, ducklings, fowls, green geese, leverets, plovers, pullets, rabbits, turkey poults, wheatears.

    Turkey poults turn out to be turkey chicks. Leverets are hares that are less than 1 yr old incase you were wondering.

    VEGETABLES.–Artichokes, asparagus, beans, cabbages, carrots, cucumbers, lettuces, onions, parsnips, pease, potatoes, radishes, small salads, sea-kale, spinach,–various herbs.

    Ok I don’t know which type of artichoke she means here – I am assuming its not Chinese Artichoke and from looking at things in my garden I would say its more likely to be globe artichoke than jeruselum.

    FRUIT.–Apricots, cherries, currants, gooseberries, melons, nectarines, peaches, pears, pineapples, raspberries, rhubarb, strawberries.

    Ok I am assuming that pineapples have to be grown in glass houses/green houses/aurbatariums in this country not sure about some of the other fruit here!
