Foods and recipes of the 1840's
« on: December 18, 2017, 09:52:07 PM »
I've had this site in my favorites for several years. It is so extensive in information it's difficult to digest it all.
The food section breaks down to the most basic. Even how to start you own yeast cultures. The other sections
cover almost all facets of pioneer life including first person stories of everyday life in the 1840's and '50's.
I did a search to see if this had been discussed before and came up empty. I hope this is not redundant.
and those of you that are interested in this sort of information find it enjoyable.

Pete, I beat ya' to it! :lol:    I find that kind of thing very interesting, too.....so I posted that information a few years back in another thread, but it sure doesn't hurt to get it out there again for new members to examine.   :cheers:

Even though it has been posted before thanks for posting it again as many will have forgotten it and others lost it in the mess of their bookmarks.  (I am guilty of both counts).

Just for giggles, I did a search for the old thread that I posted over 5 years ago. Time flies, I guess!

Looking through the Beverage section; its none too hard to see why sodeepop was such a hit.

Stop by on your next antelope hunt to Wyoming and I'll give you the 35-40 lb. bag of suet I have leftover in the freezer from deer season. :thumbsup:
