History from the Hearth: A Colonial Michilimackinac Cookbookby Sally Eustice
This is an outstanding collection of traditional eighteenth-century recipes complimented by historical vignettes drawn from letters and journals of the fur trading village's inhabitants. All the recipes are designed to be cooked over a fire or in a fireplace, but they can be adapted for cooking in modern ovens. Topics from the book: ...Did the voyageurs really eat bear grease and dried corn for dinner?...What are those dried things hanging over the fireplace?...Roast beaver and muskrat stew?...How did the women preserve food for the winter?
