Description: Most of the old recipes in this book were gathered from mountain women who rarely bothered to write down from generation to generation with the general instructions to use a "pinch" of this and a "dab" of that.
The big meal of the day was breakfast, and the boiled meal was supper. Menfolk rarely " messed around" with cooking but it was surprising how well they could cook with "make -- do fixin's" when they were out in the woods on a hunting trip.
The old fashioned iron Dutch oven, the type with legs and a tight fitting flanged lid, was the pioneers' all-in-one cooking utensil. It could be hung over an open fire, set down in the fire, or buried in a pit of coals. it was at once a kettle, a frying pan, an oven, a pot, and sometimes even a stove.
Condition: A few recipes have a small check mark in ink next to the title.
