Cooking & Baking During the Civil War is chock full of delightfully delicious cooking ideas favored by many famous people of days long past.
It contains the prized recipes for those dishes cooked by, or eaten by, some of the better known as well as lesser-known figures from the Civil War era of our glorious history.
Included are recipes for tasty breads and interesting baked goods, skillet southern fried chicken and really good poultry dishes. Here you will also be treated to many taste-tempting soups, stews and stuffings – and, yes, even pickles as well as loads of other wonderful things.
Or you may wish to try some buttermilk pie, an array of wonderful desserts, rhubarb punch and other delightful beverages. Then make the unique corn bread with a streak of delicious custard running through it.
Yes, you can now enjoy a meal exactly like that eaten by those who wore both the blue and the gray during the War Between the States – or as some unreconstructed Southerners still refer to it – the War of Northern Aggression.
Here you will find the favorites of such historical luminaries as Gilbert van Camp who dearly loved sweet potato biscuits for breakfast.
Or those honey cookies eaten by President Abraham Lincoln.
And the special pork and parsnip stew so enjoyed by Medal of Honor winner, Dr. Mary Edwards Walker.
That unusual molasses pie made by the wife of famed Confederate Colonel Nathan Bedford Forrest.
Or those special huckleberry pancakes so dearly loved by General Robert E. Lee.
And the giblet-cornmeal turkey stuffing prepared on special holidays by the Abner Doubleday family.
To sum everything up, each recipe found in Cooking and Baking During The Civil War once popular, or at least commonly used during the Civil War period.
They were all part of the history of a particular family, or person, who lived and loved and prayed and fought through this tragic time of our great nation.
Many were coveted treasures within a family, some famous, some not so famous, and handed down through the years or lost with the passage of time.
Each recipe has been meticulously updated. When the recipe is used today, it will turn out exactly as it did for the woman of the house that prepared it for her family so many long years ago.
Here they are presented for the first time for today’s American families to enjoy and experience the pleasure of preparing, cooking, baking and serving – exactly as it was done in the past. And lastly, to thankfully pass a blessing over before eating – be it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
