Description: Reaching back and tugging at old and almost forgotten memories -- that's what Big Mama's Old Black Pot Recipes is all about. This cookbook is brimming with page after page of nostalgia and recipes for good old-fashioned, calorie- ladened, country-style cooking.
Meshing the old and the new makes this cookbook useful as well as entertaining. Splendid illustrations, short stories and folklore depict a way of life scarcely recorded in history books. The recipes included are simple and delicious -- and have long been favorites of "country folk" as well as their kissing cousins from the city.
While pouring through old letters, photographs, journals, diaries, etc., chatting across fences with farmers and sitting on porches listening to stories about "hard times," we came to a couple of rather profound conclusions. First, the rural South has a proud heritage that must not be tucked away and forgotten. And secondly, "an old black pot can't be beat when you want something fit to eat."
