Civil War Cooking

Please be patient, as you are reading this I am probably hunting for resources on cooking, recipes, and cooking supplies. I'll put more info here very soon!

Potato Sourdough Starter

Boil some potatoes for supper, save the potato water, and use it lukewarm with enough unbleached flour to make a thick batter. without yeast. This is a good way to make it in camp, where you have no yeast available and want fast results. This is also the way most farm girls made it in the olden days. Let stand a day or so, or until it smells right.

I will add recipes for sourdough and other foods at a later date. Enjoy!

If you have any recipes you'd like me to put on here, feel free to email me!
