I have been conducting research on cooking in the late 1800 thru early 1900’s. One thing I am finding is how much we have forgot. Reading some of the older cook books has reminded me of a lot of things that were common when I was a child, but are now forgotten. Things like everyone having a meat grinder to make their own hamburger. The foods my mother cooked were all homemade, few frozen or packed dishes. Preparedness Mom and I are going to start posting information on this subject. To get you thinking here is a chart out of an old cookbook.
