“This is similar to the recipe for creamed onions served at the King's Arms Tavern in Colonial Williamsburg. The Tavern version (from a 1970s cookbook of Old Williamsburg recipes) includes extra salt which I omit. The salted peanuts make it salty enough for my tastes, even before the doctor put me on a low-salt diet. However, I always have a salt shaker on the table so people who like it saltier can add it themselves.”
