A working class supper in 1820
« on: February 11, 2022, 08:45:21 AM »
Here is a short video from a series I watch on You Tube.  It shows how life was in the late 1700's and early 1800's.  They cover a lot of aspects and this one is about preparing a typical meal.

I've been watching that series, also.  It's well done and interesting....it seems like I watch more YouTube videos these days than I do television.

Well, thirteen minutes and thirty-nine seconds ago, I wasn't hungry.
Enjoyable video.  Thanks for posting.

By the way if you follow these recipes a Gill, in U.S. cooking, is 8 table spoons or a half a cup.
