There was the turkey with the chestnut stuffing and brandy butter which I remembered used to cause Dorcas and Alison such concern. ?? Sabina showed no such anxiety. She chattered away making us all laugh as we teased her.

Used to = happened in the past
Cause = to make happen

So, for some reason, in the past the turkey with stuffing and brandy cream made Dorcas and Alison concerned (worried).
